EU grants for small-scale online media: supporting high-quality news products and tackling fake news

EU grants for small-scale online media: supporting high-quality news products and tackling fake news

About a few days ago, the European Commission announced a Call for Proposals activities by providing funding to specific research projects on disinformation and complement the European Digital Media Observatory’s (EDMO) activities by providing funding to specific research projects on disinformation. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 30 November 2020.

Such projects, which include fact-checking and analysis of online propagation patterns, should be carried out by expert teams with specific knowledge of information and media environments in one or more Member States.

As it is mentioned within the European Commission’s announcement, proposals must ensure the involvement of media organizations, and specific expertise in fact-checking, media literacy, network science, data, and computer science. The corrigendum of 09/10/2020 clarifies that proposals must ensure the involvement of small-scale media organization (s).

Last but not least, the selected projects will focus their journalistic investigations and research activities around emerging digital media vulnerabilities and disinformation campaigns, which are of special relevance within the territory and/or linguistic area in which they will operate.
