DIGYMATEX plans to develop the Digital Youth Maturity Index (DYMI), an innovative tool that will establish and implement a comprehensive understanding and taxonomy of children’s digital maturity. Users of DYMI will be able to utilise it to predict and explain benefits and risks arising from children’s ICT-related behaviour.

In addition the DiGYou3-program, the project will develop a technology-related solution and recommendation program based on three levels – individual, social and national.

By applying these state-of-the-art tools, DIGYMATEX will establish a comprehensive taxonomy, which will inform relevant stakeholders and practitioners of the long-term effects of ICT on child behaviour. The consortium will offer concrete solutions that will contribute to a safer and more beneficial use of digital technologies by children to formulate recommendations in support of national and European policies in this field.

DIGYMATEX is coordinated by Aarhus University (Department of Management) and comprised of 12 partner organisations from leading universities, research institutions and technology companies from nine different countries, including Germany, Denmark, Austria, Spain, Norway, Greece the Netherlands, Ireland, Israel and France.

The project applies an inter-disciplinary, multi-method approach by integrating and connecting expertise, methods and knowledge from different research areas such as business management, psychology, sociology, neuroscience, media and information systems.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement no 870578.
