The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) is pleased to gather with the fourteen EDMO Hubs in Dubrovnik on 28-29 September 2023. Hosted by the Adria Digital Media Observatory (ADMO) at the University of Dubrovnik, this two-day hybrid meeting will bring together the multidisciplinary EDMO network of fact-checkers, media literacy experts, and academic researchers active across all 27 EU member states to tackle online disinformation. The meeting will focus on the next steps for collaboration in the main areas of activity of the EDMO network. It will also allow deeper conversations into pressing topics including elections-related disinformation, generative AI and Structural Indicators. The reunion of the network in Dubrovnik is also the occasion for the EDMO Executive Board to hold an in-person meeting.
The event will be followed by the 16th Dubrovnik Media Days on 29-30 September 2023. The International Scientific Conference on Disinformation Research: Current Trends and Perspectives is organised in cooperation with the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) and the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts and with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
More information on the EDMO Hubs is available here.
