“Data protection aspects play an important role in the development of an online knowledge base, which also involves various groups of actors, and we take particular care to take this into account. We are pleased to be supported in this task by Katharina Kinder-Kurlander as the ethics advisor in the CO:RE project.”

Our goals

The overall goal of the CO:RE project is to successfully establish a pan-European knowledge platform. CO:RE aims at making visible and disseminate evidence, data, state of the art methodological approaches, theoretical innovations and much more, to all stakeholders and dialogue groups concerned with children and youth online media use.

With work package 11, we make sure that all activities taken within the CO:RE project comply with our ethical standards and all ethical requirements of the EU Commission.

Our three-year timeline

Year 1

In year 1, the overall goal of CO:RE is to chart out a knowledge platform that meets the needs of our stakeholders. In doing so, a notable amount of work goes into exchanging with these stakeholders and thus, we focus on facilitating these activities by providing robust and safe digital infrastructure. Particularly its compliance to the EU’s GDPR lies at the heart of our work.

Year 2

In year 2, the goal of CO:RE is to create a robust knowledge platform catering to the specific needs of our stakeholders, i.e., educators, researchers and policy makers. In doing so, our work focuses on complying to ethical regulations with particular regard to data privacy and protecting our users’ rights online.

Year 3

In year 3, our focus lies on making sure that the CO:RE platform complies to all relevant ethical regulations beyond the project duration to remain being a robust and safe infrastructure to educators, researchers and policy makers alike.

Our team

Behind WP11 CO:RE is a team of renowned scientists and experts who have been working for many years in different contexts and projects on the online use by children and young people.
