Children Online Protection Lab - Request for EOI

The objective of this Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI) is to develop a better understanding of the COPL community’s priorities, identify ideas and resources and co-construct next steps of the experimentation process. This Request for Expressions of Interest is open until March 3, 2024.

Safe Online’s collaboration with the Children Online Protection Lab

As a key partner of the Children Online Protection Lab, Safe Online supports the Secretariat in the development of its programs. The COPL is working to mobilise resources that could be landed at Safe Online with its established grant-making infrastructure. Safe Online will provide support for the operationalisation of a Fund where it will be able to receive financial contributions from donors. With its robust grant-making and investment infrastructure, Safe Online will support the development of the subsequent Call for Proposals, selection and evaluation of experimentation projects.
