DigiGen’s scientific and public engagement- examples of the team’s activities during the past six months


In the last six months of the project, we have been busy disseminating our findings and research-based recommendations for policy and practice to key stakeholders across Europe. Here are some examples:

Bringing DigiGen to the public through media

OsloMet have conducted interviews for Norwegian national and local media such as NRK (Norwegian national media authority) and the Stavanger Aftenblad (newspaper).

Meeting with policymakers

National teams have been meeting with Ministries to discuss DigiGen policy recommendations. For example, the Norwegian team met with the Minister of Culture and Inclusion and the Austrian team met with the Vorarlberg regional government for family issues. COFACE Families Europe have been engaging with EU policymakers across DG EMPL, DG CNECT, and DG EAC. The EU Safer Internet Forum was a key place to embed DigiGen findings into the implementation of the updated Better Internet for Kids (BIK+) strategy.

Spreading the word through academic conferences

DigiGen researchers have presented at many conferences over the last 6 months such as the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) conference held in October in Aarhus, Denmark.
