Abstract
This report summarizes the motivation and the goals of the "CyberWiseKids" project proposal. The proposal was designed by SINTEF in 2015 and revised in 2016, with the aim of developing a research and innovation project which would involve several industrial and academic partners from Norway and Europe. The underlying idea was motivated by the need for enabling children and young people to make the right balance between online opportunities and online risks. A significant innovation potential was envisioned and elaborated within the proposal. Although far less detailed than the original project proposal and excluding several major aspects (e.g. innovation, organization, project plans research questions, and state of the art) that were part of the original proposal, this report quotes and reproduces the parts (of the original proposal) regarding motivation, challenges, and the objectives. The purpose of this report is to enlighten the persistent challenges that young people are facing while being online, as well as to indicate the still-existing needs and opportunities for addressing such challenges through innovation and research.
