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

Research

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.

Knowledge sharing

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.

Advocacy

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.

Outreach

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.

Pre-Register for #Disinfo2021

EU DisinfoLab’s Annual Conference will take place this year on October 26 & 27th.

Last Wednesday, the EU DisinfoLab published an Open Letter calling on EU policy-makers to amend the draft EU Digital Services Act (DSA) to tackle disinformation head-on, ensure stronger measures on platform accountability and more democratic oversight over our online environment.

Most of the time, one of the first purposes, if not the only purpose, of a CIB network is to increase amplification of content: looking at content distribution metrics will help to detect or to uncover a possible CIB network.
