euCONSENT and the Better Internet For Kids+ Strategy

The European Commission has published an update to their approach to making the internet a safer place for children across Europe, the Better Internet For Kids+ (BIK+) Strategy.

We were delighted to see a commitment to build on the work of euCONSENT funded project to create interoperability for age checks and parental consent processes across Europe:

Building on ongoing work [euCONSENT is a EU funded pilot project aiming to design and test an interoperable solution for age verification and parental consent]  and taking account of the new DSA [Digital Services Act] rules for online platforms, the Commission will support methods to prove age in a privacy-preserving and secure manner, to be recognised EU-wide. The Commission will work with Member States [primarily through the safer internet for children expert group] (who in line with national legislation can choose to issue electronic IDs to the under-18s under the recent proposal on a European Digital Identity), relevant stakeholders and European standardisation organisations to strengthen effective age verification methods, as a priority. This work will encourage market solutions through a robust framework of certification and interoperability.

Greetings from Police Colonel Vasileios Papakostas at euCONSENT Conference in May 25, 2022

I am here on behalf of the Deputy Minister of Citizens’ Protection, Eleftherios Oikonomou, who was unable to attend and I would like to convey his greetings and thanks for the invitation to this congress.

Nowadays the use of the Internet is part of our daily lives and this concerns all of us and mostly our children. Children of all ages spend a lot of time “digitally connected”, through mobile phones, apps, laptops and tablets, but also through toys, household objects and wearable devices.

euCONSENT’s first large scale pilot

The first large scale pilot of our project just ended. It was held between the 17th of February until 3rd of March.

All the activities performed in the first half of the project – establishing a common vocabulary for the project, finding legal grounds for the framework to be implemented, analysing what parents, children and adults want and expect to find in the online environment to have a sense of security and safety, knowing the current situation for the way that online businesses (online shops, social media channels, online AV content, etc.) have been implementing methods for obtaining parental consent, protecting children and their rights, GDPR requirements, etc. – have created the basis for the framework, a route to follow in developing it.

We’ve asked our technical leader, Vangelis Bagiatis, to give us some details on the pilot in a more comprehensive but not very technical manner.

euConsent conference, May 2022

After the success of last year’s conference, the euCONSENT team has decided to run another conference on the 25th of May in Athens. We hope to have rather more in person attendees now that travel restrictions have eased; however, it will be a hybrid event to give the opportunity for people to attend virtually. Preparations are already under way, with discussions on which topics will be included in the schedule. We hope that the conference will be as well-received as the last one. There were over 160 participants in our first event, and we were pleased that the virtual conference platform we selected gave those who could not be there in person an equal opportunity to engage and ask their questions.
