The Vice-President of the European Parliament Eva Kaili invites you to hear about the latest innovations in the fight against disinformation.
The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) is pleased to announce the launch of its online training module on “The InVID-WeVerify verification toolbox”, organised in collaboration with the Observatoire de l’Information et des médias (DE FACTO), the Ireland Hub and the vera.ai project.
The Media & Learning Association together with the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) is running a series of online seminars on the work of the EDMO Hubs on Media Literacy
EDMO is an independent observatory bringing together fact-checkers and academic researchers with expertise in the field of online disinformation, social media platforms, journalist driven media and media literacy practitioners.
EDMO promotes scientific knowledge on online disinformation, advances the development of fact-checking services and supports media literacy programmes.
EDMO and the national or multinational hubs form a network aimed at countering disinformation and analysing its impact on society and democracy both at national and European level.
Through the Connecting Europe Facility, the European Commission allocated more than 11 million euros to finance the first eight hubs which were officially announced in May 2021.
Since then, the hubs are building a multidisciplinary community of academic researchers, fact-checkers, media practitioners, and other relevant stakeholders. This community engages in detecting and exposing disinformation campaigns including by developing tools and methods to counter online disinformation, organises media literacy activities, and analyses digital media ecosystems across 15 countries in the EU and the EEA. The hubs are independent from any national or EU public authority.
