Aston University wins EU funding for ‘game-changing’ age verification projectMay 12, 20211 min read
Researchers from Aston University led by Abhilash Nair are to take part in a ‘game-changing’ new project to improve children’s safety online. The European Commission has awarded the euCONSENT consortium €1.47m (£1.2m) in funding to create child rights’ centred cross-border system for online age verification and parental consent.
"As society continues to grapple with inequalities in terms of digital literacy and digital divide between generations, it is important that the tech industry assumes more responsibility for protecting, as well as upholding the rights of children online.”
