BBC News is reporting that the EU is extending its Internet safety program with an additional investment of 55 million euros. The money is to be spent over four years on education and ways to protect children from inappropriate content and cyber bullying.

The money will also fund research into the ways that children use the internet on computers and mobile devices. "As more and more European children and adolescents use online technologies at home or at school, they, their parents and their teachers need to be informed about the opportunities and risks they face," said Jose Barroso, EC president in a statement.

The extended program will create national contact points for reporting illegal content and support groups where parents can turn to for advice on children’s use of the Internet.
