Enhancing Knowledge Regarding European Children's Use, Risk and Safety

This project| centres on a cross-national survey of European children's
experiences of the internet, focusing on uses, activities, risks and
safety. It also maps parents' experiences, practices and concerns
regarding their children's online risk and safety.

More than 25,000 children from across Europe (and one of their parents)
were interviewed for the study, EU Kids Online, based at the London
School of Economics and Political Science, co-ordinated by Professor
Sonia Livingstone and Dr Leslie Haddon, and funded by the European
Commission's Safer Internet Programme.

The EU Kids Online project aims to enhance knowledge of European
children's and parents' experiences and practices regarding risky and
safer use of the internet and new online technologies, and thereby to
inform the promotion of a safer online environment for children.

Countries included in EU Kids Online are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria,
Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany,
Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway,
Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the UK.
