SIC Project started on the 1st of May 2005 and lasted till 30th of April 2007. SIC is integrating experience from past actions in Hungary and EU best practice. The general problem of internet usage in Hungary is the lack of trust and knowledge.

Therefore the consortium’s strategy is built on a twofold approach:

  • Creating confidence by providing solutions, and guidelines for safe internet usage for parents, teachers and grandparents.
  • Develop a more careful behaviour in children in connection with the dangers.

Consortium description:

The consortium consists of 3 organisations:

  • Association of Hungarian Content Providers (MTE) – the coordinator
  • Forum of Hungarian IT Organisations for Information Society (Inforum)
  • Axelero Internet (Axelero)
