A public seminar discussion on the updating of the BIK Strategy – European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children
The European Commission has announced plans to update the European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children or ‘BIK Strategy’ which since 2012 has sought to protect and empower children online through EU funding, coordination and self-regulation.
As a suite of EU-funded projects researching the impact of technological transformations on children and youth, CO:RE, ySKILLS, DigiGen and DIGYMATEX are each developing particular insights into the dynamic and changing digital environment for young people.
In this seminar, representatives from each of the projects will share their perspective on the issues addressed by the BIK Strategy and how their specific work programme may contribute insights into how policy can shape a better online environment for children
This seminar will offer an opportunity for participants to learn more about the focus of each of the projects and the emerging topics of interest regarding the updating of the BIK Strategy.
Organised by CO:RE Children Online – Research and Evidence, the seminar aims to raise awareness of the contributions to policy by research initiatives and to engage with the wider stakeholder community on enhancing participation in the policy process.
This online public seminar is open to all.
