What?

Urgent actions: Projects designed to increase coverage, depth, and speed of fact-checking activities by organisations that commit to producing regular flows of fact-checks:

  • In connection to critical events (e.g., elections, public health or public security crises, etc.), which may be likely targets of disinformation campaigns in one or more European countries; and/or
  • Aimed at improving the detection and understanding of disinformation narratives in topical areas of public interest.

Scale-up projects: free-lance collaborations within newsrooms and/or the integration of state-of-the-art technologies for content verification and media and social media monitoring.

Eligibility

The following types of activities are eligible for both priorities:

  • Journalistic investigations and fact-checking activities;
  • Production of original content in the form of articles (fact-checks);
  • Awareness and dissemination actions, including conferences, seminars, events;
  • Actions aiming at the creation and improvement of networks, exchanges of good practices, and uptake of innovative methodologies and relevant technologies.

Additionally, for priority Scale-Up projects, the following types of activities are also eligible:

  • Integration of complementary skills via additional human resources in Newsrooms;
  • Usage of innovative tools improving the efficiency of fact-checking (e.g., by facilitating online content verification or network analysis).
