In spite of the substantial increase in digital media usage by very young children, research seems to be lagging behind. The present study is conducted to fill this gap in research. It is part of a larger European study that is coordinated and funded by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission’s in-house science service, and conducted in the framework of the project Empowering Citizens’ Rights in Emerging ICT. In collaboration with a selected group of academic partners in different European countries, this qualitative, in-depth study aims at exploring young children and their families’ experiences with new technologies.
