Resources for Policymakers

The CO:RE Policy Directory provides a central resource about relevant actors and policies in the field of policy-making for children, youth and digital technologies across Europe. This searchable database contains relevant policies and public, civil society and private sector organisations involved in policy-making in the EU Member States.
Entries were identified in the BIK Policy Mapping process and in consultations with the EU Kids Online network.

Policy Stakeholders

The team at TU Dublin facilitates and promotes the uptake of state of the art scientific evidence by policymakers, while fostering feedback loops that allow policymakers to bring attention to under-researched, yet necessary aspects for policy making. The team hosts a series of events and fora, to give a voice to everyone concerned, from children and young people, to educators and policymakers.

Furthermore, the team publishes a series of policy briefs and reports, as well as collates all key actors in policy-making relevant to children, youth and digital media in one comprehensive European policy contact directory.
