Le programme communautaire Safer Internet plus 2005 - 2008 organise une journée publique de présentation du nouveau
programme, de l'appel qui va être lancé et des partenariats en cours
Friday 12 September 2003 
Room M6, Jean Monnet Building, Luxembourg 
The Safer Internet programme has been extended to the end of 2004 by the European Parliament and Council.

Alongside its implementation of the second phase of the Safer Internet programme 2003 - 2004, the Commission is making
preparations for proposing a follow-up programme covering the period 2005 - 2008, the Safer Internet plus programme,
including getting input from interested parties.

A public consultation on Safer Internet plus will take place in Luxembourg on Friday 12 September 2003, on the same day as
the information day for the call for proposals under the Safer Internet Work Programme 2003 - 2004.

The overall objective would continue to be: to promote safer use of the Internet and new online technologies, particularly
for children, and to fight against illegal content and content unwanted by the end user. In line with this, the programme
would focus on the end-user - particularly parents, educators and children.

Such a programme would be inspired by the principles of continuity and enhancement:

- Continuity: take account of lessons learned and build on the achievements of the initiatives already funded - such as
hotlines, awareness projects, rating and filtering, self-regulation - so as to ensure that their effects continue;

- Enhancement: open the programme to new media, to new issues such as "spam", expand network to accession countries,
stimulate a multiplier effect and broaden international outreach.

The programme will look at the role that different actors concerned (e.g. ISPs, mobile network operators, national
regulators, police, software companies, parents, teachers, NGOs dealing with family, children and consumer rights) could
play in the fight against illegal, harmful and unwanted content.

The consultation will cover the following points:

- Scope of a follow-up programme (e.g. action against "spam") 
- Roles and contributions of the different actors 
- Subsidiarity, respective roles of action at European level and at national, regional and local levels, need for
international co-operation 
- Amount of Community funding for different actions 
- Instruments to be used 

Please consult the agenda and the online registration form for more details.
