> EU Kids Online - New Project Looking at Children's Experiences,  
> Risks and Opportunities Online
> Cultural, Contextual and Risk Issues in Children's Safe Use of the  
> Internet and New Media (2006-2009)
> EU Kids Online, a project funded by the EC Safer Internet plus  
> Programme, began work at the end of June. This thematic network,  
> consisting of key researchers from 18 countries, will examine  
> ongoing and new research being carried out across different member  
> states into how children and young people are using the internet  
> and other online technologies.
> This three-year collaboration aims to identify comparable research  
> findings across Europe to evaluate the social, cultural and  
> regulatory influences affecting both risks and children's and  
> parents' responses to them. It will chart available data, highlight  
> research gaps and identify factors that shape the research  
> capability of European research institutions. Finally, it will  
> examine methodological issues relating to cross-cultural analysis  
> in relation to the study of children's online experiences in order  
> to develop a best practice guide for future research.
> To be sure of identifying all relevant research findings   
> especially for ongoing and new research, the project members warmly  
> invite communications from the wider community of policy-makers,  
> practitioners and researchers in order to achieve this goal.
> Please feel free to forward this message to others who may be  
> interested. Anyone who wishes to be kept informed about the project  
> can register on our website www.eukidsonline.net or email Panayiota  
> Tsatsou at P.Tsatsou at lse.ac.uk. And do tell us about any research,  
> surveys or events in this area. Thank you!
