Between the 28-29th May in Brussels, the EU DisinfoLab hosted a major event gathering the community of journalists, civil society members, tech companies, and government representatives working on disinformation.
On May 29, in the framework of the EU DisinfoLab Conference in Brussels, a session dedicated to the Erasmus+ Project ‘Open Your Eyes’ was held. The session has gathered around 80 participants working on media literacy, journalists, tech companies and researchers.
Along two days, this conference will explore the phenomenon of disinformation and information disorder, from its roots to technical and regulatory responses. The event will gather the community of experts working on disinformation, people who concretely build tools to create knowledge and cross-expertise.
