What?

This Call aims at supporting wide and deep scientific studies on the disinformation phenomenon, encompassing its causes, societal impacts and possible responses, such as to generate more and better knowledge through innovative collaborations between different disciplines and entities.

In particular, grants will fund the production of studies on fundamental epistemological issues linked to the digital transformation of the media landscape, including research on the effects of digital media and technologies, such as AI, on human cognitive processes, civic behavior, social interactions and democratic participation.

  • Deploy new methodologies and answer fundamental human and societal questions surrounding disinformation;
  • Lay out standards/frameworks/approaches for better understanding social harms resulting from different forms of media manipulation; and
  • Move theoretical studies forward by combining innovative analytical approaches with practical testing and implementation of remedial measures. This may include the creation and use of testing environments (sandboxes) to experiment with methodological solutions.

Eligibility

The following types of activities are eligible:

  • Research activities, including data collection and analytics;
  • Production of original content in the form of studies, analyses, mapping projects;
  • creation and use of testing environments (sandboxes) to experiment with methodological solutions to improve the detection of disinformation, or to provide original approaches to explore and expose disinformation campaigns and related harms, or to enhance the reach of quality information;
  • Actions aiming at the creation and improvement of networks, exchanges of good practices, and uptake of innovative methodologies and relevant technologies.
  • Usage of innovative tools, capable of improving the analysis of systemic risks within specific information environments and digital media ecosystems, as well as the effectiveness of remedial actions;
  • Awareness and dissemination actions, including conferences, seminars, events, in the context of the above listed activities.
