European Digital Media observatory (EDMO) – National and multinational hubs

Deadline: 26 September 2023

Expected outcome:

  • At the end of the actions, a network of existing and newly established research hubs will be active across the EU under the coordination of EMDO.
  • Networks of experts and organizations linked to the hubs will be part of a European multidisciplinary which will actively detect, analyse and expose disinformation campaigns in Europe.
  • Each hu will have produced or contribute to at least 100 fact-checks, 20 investigations and reports on disinformation campaigns and shared them through EMDO.
  • Each hub will have established at least 10 tailor-made media literacy programs in Member States             and produced reports(at least 1 per year) regarding the implementation and effectiveness of online platforms policies to tackle disinformation.


The objective of this topic is to finance the work of independent national/ multinational hubs for analysis of digital media ecosystems in order to ensure the coverage of geographical areas covered by the EMDO hubs for which the funding is ending at the end of 2023 and in 2024.


Support will be provided to:

  • Cooperate with national authorities for the monitoring of online platforms’ policies and digital media ecosystem in the territory or linguistic area covered by the proposal. In particular, they will provide relevant insights which might help competent national authorities, including the audio-visual regulator(s), monitoring the implementation of the Strengthened Code of Practice on Disinformation by its signatories.
  • Create tailor-made media literacy campaigns for the covered territory or linguistic area. Hubs will leverage on the exchange of good practices and materials coordinated by EMDO and contribute to the EMDO repositories with newly created educational and training materials.
