How do children and adolescents in Europe use the Internet; which risks do they encounter and how do they handle them? The project EU Kids Online has been dealing with these questions since 2006.
The international research project EU Kids Online analyses how children in 33 different countries use the internet. The aim of the network is to conduct its own studies that provide a basis for further recommendations regarding the fields of media education, law and politics. In addition, the team revewis existing findings on online use, processes these findings and identifies research gaps.
The key findings of the representative survey from 2019 will be presented in Berlin, Sept 19th, 2019. Your can find the key findings here (pdf).
The project was started in 2006 under the direction of Sonia Livingstone, in 2014 Uwe Hasebrink took over the coordination of the research network.
Since 2019, the fifth phase has not only focused on the consolidation of the network, but also on the realisation of a new internationally comparative representative survey following the 2010 survey.
