The fourteen existing national or multinational hubs cover all 27 EU Member States as well as Norway, in the EEA.
Each national and multinational hub constitutes a network of organisations active in one or several Member States, to provide specific knowledge of local information environments so as to strengthen the detection and analysis of disinformation campaigns, improve public awareness, and design effective responses for national audiences.
By focusing on emerging digital media vulnerabilities and disinformation campaigns relevant to a specific territory and/or linguistic area, each hub represents a crucial source of knowledge on local information environments.
EDMO is a European multidisciplinary community gathering academic researchers, fact-checkers, media practitioners, digital literacy experts and other relevant actors in order to actively detect, analyze and expose disinformation campaigns across Europe.
Each hub will contribute to:
- Detecting and analysing disinformation campaigns, as well as producing content to support mainstream and local media and public authorities in exposing harmful disinformation campaigns;
- Organising media literacy activities at national or multinational level;
- Providing support to national authorities for the monitoring of online platforms’ policies and the digital media ecosystem.
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. In December 2022, six new hubs have been established through the Digital Europe Programme with about 8 million euros in EU fundings. EDMO and its regional hubs are independent from any national or EU public authority.
