We imagine a society in which every citizen:
What we believe in
What we do
Our research is multifaceted: we continuously monitor disinformation activities across all social platforms to identify trends and threats. In addition to this, we use open source intelligence techniques (OSINT) to uncover disinformation networks, strategies, as well as inauthentic behaviour. Our findings are then disseminated via our partnerships with the media and leading experts in the field.
To achieve our vision, we maintain an extensive repository of knowledge on disinformation, including scientific research, up-to-date legal and policy developments on the EU and member state levels, and innovative tools to debunk and fight against disinformation. Our repository provides the disinformation community with needed tools, knowledge, and resources to encourage collaboration.
Based on our own analyses, we regularly propose policy recommendations to the EU institutions and the EU Member States, and help other initiatives ensure that their advocacy efforts are grounded in sound analyses. In this context, we want to offer our expertise to policymakers and jointly develop a multi-stakeholder response – complete with a legal framework that preserves our freedoms and offers sustainable solutions to disinformation.
We organise regular seminars, forums, meetings and other events to share experiences and tools, plan joint ventures, and keep abreast of critical developments in the field. We put emphasis on building partnerships and fostering collaboration between relevant initiatives not only in Europe, but around the globe too. In view of this, we gather experts and organisations to exchange best practices, cooperate, and develop new approaches to countering disinformation.
Our mission is to raise awareness on disinformation and the manipulation of information and contribute to a better information landscape
