about the project
DigiGen is a European research project that is developing significant knowledge about how children and young people, a group growing up today often referred to as the Digital Generation, use and are affected by the technological transformations in their everyday lives.
The research is uncovering both harmful and beneficial effects of technology in the everyday lives of children and young people. This includes a focus on educational institutions, the home, leisure time and children and young people’s civic participation.
DigiGen is developing effective social, educational, health and online safety policies and practices in collaboration with national and international stakeholders.
