The European Platform for Investing in Children (EPIC) is an evidence-based online platform that provides information about policies that can help children and their families face the challenges that exist in the current economic climate in Europe. EPIC helps Member States implementing the Recommendation for Investing in Children and is a tool for monitoring activities triggered by the Recommendation. It is also a platform for sharing the best of policymaking for children and families and to foster cooperation and mutual learning in the field.

EPIC collects and disseminates innovative and evidence-based practices that have a positive impact on children and families in EU Member States. Evidence-based practices that have demonstrated effectiveness through rigorous research are made available in the Practices that work section. EPIC also participates in seminars and workshops around the EU, and published studies and reports to develop a better understanding of the situation of children and families in Europe.
