Fact-checking

EDMO has created a network of fact-checking organisations based in the EU to foster collaboration in contrasting disinformation.

EDMO’s fact-checking activities include:

  • The publication of monthly fact-checking briefs picturing the main disinformation trends;
  • The publication of cooperative investigations focused on specific disinformation topics;
  • The creation and update of a repository of EU based fact-checking organisations and their professional characteristics;
  • The creation of a searchable directory of online fact-checks available in several EU languages through automated translation;
  • The creation of a searchable repository of media literacy material available on EDMO’s website;
  • The organization of trainings for fact-checkers.

EDMO has also set-up a secure online platform supporting the detection and analysis of disinformation campaigns and a website providing public information to raise awareness about disinformation.

EDMO’s platform provides a variety of functionalities that support:

  • Real-time collaboration and communication among the members of EDMO’s communities;
  • Access to social media data through APIs;
  • Content monitoring and analysis of multimedia items;
  • Access to EU open data repositories.
