A vibrant home for disinformation activists and experts
EU DisinfoLab is an independent non-profit organisation focused on tackling sophisticated disinformation campaigns targeting the EU, its member states, core institutions, and core values.
What we do
We continuously monitor disinformation activities across the major platforms (digital and traditional), identify trends and threats, alert activists and researchers to these, and make our resource pool widely available to collaborators.
We develop and maintain an independent European platform on disinformation, providing experts with tools and resources to encourage collaboration. We collect and organise critical information, findings, tools and other resources useful for activists and experts.
We regularly make policy recommendations at the EU level and to Member States based on our own analyses, and help other activists ensure that their advocacy efforts are grounded in sound analyses.
We organise regular events, including an annual conference, webinars, and workshops, which collectively assemble researchers and experts to share experiences and tools, plan collaborations, and keep abreast of critical developments in the field.

During two days, we will explore issues such as the business model behind disinformation, freedom of speech online, and digital regulation. Join a community of experts in discussions and interactive presentations in exploring these issues, with the aim of building concrete policy proposals for European decision-makers.
The opening speech will be given by Nandini Jammi from Sleeping Giants and the European Commission’s Vice President Věra Jourová will conclude the conference.
We uncovered a network around linfonational.net, which impersonated politicians on Facebook to amplify disinformation in France. Our investigation shows just how easy it is to use Facebook’s features to manage a disinformation network using political content.
