Growing Up in Digital Europe (GUIDE) is the first prospective comparative longitudinal accelerated cohort survey on child wellbeing across Europe. It will provide data on a representative sample of new-born babies and a sample of school age children in several European countries, tracking them up until the age of 24. GUIDE was included on the 2021 iteration of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures Roadmap in recognition of its importance for the future. The GUIDE project is set to continue up until the 2050s.
