This extended EDMO network of hubs constitutes a multidisciplinary community of academic researchers, fact-checkers, media practitioners, digital literacy experts, 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 28 countries in the EU and the EEA. The hubs are independent from any national or EU public authority
