In order to be eligible, the applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must:
- be legal entities (public or private bodies) AND

The primary aim of this pilot project is to examine how narratives, including false and harmful narratives, emerge and how to reconcile existing narratives with facts through a case-study approach. To that end, the scope of this project is targeted to three specific policy topics of current public interest that can be easily targeted by disinformation and are expected to be examined through a case-study approach:
- the war in Ukraine;
- gendered disinformation, with a particular focus on LGBTQ+ related narratives; and
- elections, with a particular focus on the 2024 European elections
The project is expected to analyse dominant narrative patterns related to the above topics across different EU Member States in a minimum of six (6) EU languages, one of which should be English.
The pilot project will work on the following objectives:
- to monitor, analyse and measure the emergence and impact of narratives related to the war in Ukraine, gendered disinformation (in particular LGBTQ+ related narratives), and elections (in particular the 2024 European elections).
- to draw conclusions and propose measures, future policy actions and novel practices to support the emergence of positive narratives and counter harmful false narratives. These proposed measures shall be piloted in cooperation with appropriate partners from the fact-checking, media and civil society spheres.
- to disseminate the results of the project via public policy events, a dedicated project website/repository, as well as through social media and other media channels, targeting both experts and the general audience (with separate, dedicated communication strategies).
