Children Online: Research and Evidence (CORE)

Towards a pan-European knowledge platform on the effects of digital technologies on children and young people

The overall aim of this EC-funded Coordination and Support Action is to conceptualise and implement a comprehensive and dynamic, pan-European knowledge platform on the experiences of children and young people in digital communication spaces. 

  • CORE aims to provide well-founded and current findings on a broad range of topics related to the impact of technological transformations on children and youth, including their health, lifestyles, participation and digital citizenship, wellbeing, safety, and security as affected by ICT.
  • CORE will include comprehensive, reliable and systematic research from all EU Member States and a number of other European countries and thus respect relevant cultural, political, and media-related contexts.
  • CORE aims to contribute to contextualising empirical evidence by offering theoretical, methodological interpretations, and ethical reflections and guidelines.
  • CORE will help researchers and research organisations to identify important research gaps and to make optimal and informed use of existing research and data.

The platform will be developed in cooperation with relevant stakeholders, who will bring in their specific information needs and disseminate the knowledge base. The project is funded within the framework of DT-TRANSFORMATIONS-07-2019: "The impact of technological transformations on children and youth" and has a duration of three years.
