Together with the Austrian Data Protection Authority, the University of Vienna (Department of Innovation and Digitization in Law) is developing the EU-funded research project "Privacy4Kids", the aim of this project is to familiarize children and young people between the ages of 6 and 14 with the topic of data protection through educational videos and to explain to them why the protection of personal data is important, what rights they have as data subjects, what dangers there are to their privacy on the Internet or how they can protect themselves, for example, from fraud on the Internet and manipulation in social media. These videos are produced by students from various fields of study as part of a workshop-like course. Lecturers and external experts from various relevant fields continuously accompany this process. In the final phase of the project, the videos will be published and further evaluated. More information about the project can be found in ucris.
