  • NORdic Observatory for Digital Media and Information DISorder

Who are we

The Nordic Observatory for Digital Media and Information Disorder (NORDIS) is a consortium of researchers and fact-checkers from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland. We are one of the national hubs of The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO). NORDIS is funded by a grant from the European Commission, and lead by Aarhus University’s DATALAB. Our principal investigator is professor Anja Bechmann

Our aim is to develop theories, practices and models that can help counteract digital information disorders – the spreading of misinformation, disinformation and other forms of harmful information online – and to help empower citizens in the Nordic welfare states to resist such information by enabling them to enhance their media literacy.

NORDIS has members from several universities and fact-checking organisations: Aarhus University (Denmark), University of Helsinki (Finland), University of Bergen (Norway), Uppsala University (Sweden), Faktisk.no (Norway), Källkritikbyrån (Sweden), TjekDet (Denmark) and Faktabaari (Finland).

In order to preserve the fact-checkers’ editorial independence as well as research and journalistic impartiality we work independently of the EU, national authorities and other external entities.

NORDIS was officially launched on September 15th 2021. You can watch a recording of the launch event here.
