Projects

Some of the current research projects conducted by MIOS researchers focus on children’s and adolescents’ uses of ICT, and more particularly the risks they are confronted with. 

Several projects investigate cyberbullying, including fundamental and applied research projects. Besides, how children and youngsters process and respond to online marketing is analysed.

Moreover, adolescents' self-disclosure in social network sites as well as their disclosure of personal data in online marketing, are investigated.  Finally, internet users’ online shopping experiences and how they process advergames and in-game advertising is studied.  

Hereafter you will find an overview of our recent research projects. This is followed by the list of current and past research projects.
