Date: ti 06 huhti  1999 - 10:58:47 EEST

On 1 April 1999, the European Commission published in the Official Journal
C92 a call for proposals under the action plan on promoting safer use of
the Internet (1999-2002) in the following two areas:

1. The application of filtering and rating systems for Internet content
(demonstration projects)

2. To promote awareness of safe use of the Internet (preparatory actions)

The objective of actions in first area is to permit Internet users
(parents, teachers) who have responsibility for other users (children or
pupils) to decide what content they wish those persons to be able to
access. Proposals may include technologies based on metadata content
labels, or characteristics of online content to create "filtering and
rating systems" to improve access to appropriate information.

The objectives of actions in the second area are to promote awareness
actions directed at users, in particular children, parents and teachers, to
allow them to use Internet resources provided by industry safely and with
confidence, by reducing the cause for concern that may be felt about
availability of illegal and harmful content.

Deadline is 2 July 1999. Details of the call text are soon available at:
