🗣️ Research community invited: Consultation on the Revision of the European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children (the BIK Strategy) CO:RE Co-Creation Sessions in September
The European Commission has announced plans to revise and update the European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children or ‘BIK Strategy’. The BIK Strategy, launched in 2012, protects and empowers children online through EU funding, coordination, and self-regulation. This consultation initiative will update the strategy, taking into account changes in children’s use of digital technology, new technology trends, the acceleration of the digital transformation caused by COVID-19, and the ambitions of the ‘Digital Decade’ to create a human-centred, sustainable and more prosperous digital future.
CO:RE member Brian O’Neill is leading a targeted consultation with the research community to invite input for this important policy initiative.
This is a great opportunity to contribute your expert opinion to ensure the new Strategy is evidence-based and informed by the latest research findings. Please contribute any input you think is relevant. The survey will remain open until the end of October. Researchers are also invited via the survey to join a workshop on October 26th where the Strategy and the consultation findings will be discussed further.
