EU Kids Online
With 75% of European children using the internet, some observers
celebrate children’s youthful expertise while others worry that they
are vulnerable to new forms of harm. Policies to balance the goals of
maximising opportunities and minimising risks require an evidence-based approach.
Funded by the European Commission’s Safer Internet Programme, EU
Kids Online (2006-09) is a thematic network that aimed to identify,
compare and draw conclusions from existing and ongoing research
on children and online technologies conducted in Europe.
