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.
29-30 September 2020
It is with sadness that we have to announce the postponement of our conference held 5-6 May due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The conference will now be hosted between 29-30 September in Brussels, Belgium.
As the virus swept across the world, we decided to zoom into the narratives defining what the WHO term as “the infodemic”. Based on our monitoring of independently fact-checked disinformation from France, Italy, and Spain, we have been able to draw trends from the content, such as the strategies and platforms used to disinform.
