Safer Internet AT SIC: Safer Internet Austria: Stopline and Saferinternet.at

The Safer Internet Centre is a long-standing and successful action which will be continued under this project.

“Safer Internet Austria: Stopline and Saferinternet.at (SI Austria)" is the Safer Internet Centre with a helpline in Austria. It is the continuation and expansion of the existing project.

The mission of SI Austria is threefold:
1. To run inventive, attention-grabbing and informative awareness campaigns about online safety. Target groups are minors, parents, teachers, youth workers and multipliers (media, public authorities, industry and NGOs).
2. To operate the Austrian hotline Stopline against child pornography on the Internet. Stopline’s goal is to set a significant contribution to the removal of illegal content by assisting users and ISPs how to react on such content as well as by closely cooperating with law enforcement authorities.
3. To offer a cost-free telephone and online helpline where children and parents can obtain advice on how to deal with harmful contact, content and conduct related to using online technologies (in co-operation with the largest Austrian telephone helpline for minors "147 Rat auf Draht").

Strengthening already established partnerships with all relevant Austrian key players (as organised in the Safer Internet Austria Advisory Board) is considered as the decisive foundation for SI Austria. The second important approach to reach target groups is extensive media work. The participation of minors ensures the appropriateness of awareness raising measures. Measures are adapted to European context in order to foster active European co-operation in the networks INHOPE and INSAFE and to support less experienced nodes. A highlight of the multitude of events organised by SI Austria is the annual European Safer Internet Day. OIAT is overall coordinator of SI Austria and technical coordinator of the awareness centre and helpline "Saferinternet.at", nic.at is technical coordinator of the hotline "Stopline" and ISPA is consortium partner of "Saferinternet.at".
SI Austria has strong documented support from 32 stakeholders, including the Federal Chancellery, most relevant ministries, law enforcement agencies, youth and parental organisations and research institutions. The duration of the proposed project is 24 months.
