SODA is a research project that explores fluid organizations as constitutions built through communication, and the possibilities of computational matching in supporting communicative organizing. The project provides information on how data collected on an organization’s communication platforms can be used both to research and facilitate organizing.

The research objectives of SODA are:

  • RO1. Explore and model how interaction and organizing take place communicatively through digital interaction platforms
  • RO2. Model and prototype how digital technologies can be used to support communicative organizing
  • RO3. Critically examine the expectations, knowledge and ethical choices associated with the use of digital platforms that support organizing through user research

The project is funded by Liikesivistysrahasto (Economic Education Foundation) 2022-2024 and led by Docent, D.Soc.Sc. Salla-Maaria Laaksonen.
