Better Internet for Kids Network Pilot
BIK NET (Better Internet for Kids Network Pilot) is a 12-month project in which EUN Partnership and INHOPE will, in close partnership with 24 organisations which make up 11 national Safer Internet Centres (SICs), plan, develop and roll out a multilingual platform to deliver integrated, interoperable core services across the 11 participating countries.
