How to Join

Be part of EDMO’s fact-checking Community

Thank you for your interest in joining EDMO’s fact-checking community and collaborative verification workspace.

The European Digital Media Observatory promotes collaborative investigations among fact-checkers. For that purpose, among other things, it provides free access to the collaborative verification platform, based on Truly Media, a technological platform for carrying out collaborative investigations developed by ATC and Deutsche Welle. Fact-checkers that are part of the network maintain full editorial independence, and are asked to be an active part in the community according to their expertise.
