EU kids online II

Professor Livingstone's team will conduct research into the various safety issues for children online, which include risks such as exposure to inappropriate content, sexual grooming and bullying. The study will analyse groups of children aged between 9 and 16 years old and their parents from up to 25 European Union member states to produce comparative results on internet use across Europe. The researchers hope to improve understanding of children's safety on the internet by informing policymakers, educators and the public about online trends.
