What is CO:RE?

Children and young people go online virtually every day. International data on children and online media is extensive, heterogeneous and partly contradictory.

Our aim is to create a comprehensive pan-European knowledge platform with the participation of international researchers, educators, policymakers and concerned dialogue groups. Providing an overview of the research situation, enabling access to empirical data, distributing policy recommendations and offering resources for education lie at the heart of our work.

On this page you currently can find general information about the project, its consortium, publications, events and other outputs. This year, the page will transition and incrementally grow into the CO:RE Knowledge Base – so, stay tuned! 🙂
