EDMO is an EU project that aims at creating and supporting the work of an independent multidisciplinary community capable of contributing to a deeper understanding of the disinformation phenomenon and to increase societal resilience to it. The project consortium is made up of four partners including DATALAB.

DATALAB’s work in the project is centralised in Task 4 that includes four main elements: the mapping of relevant academic activities in the EU, the identification of relevant academic institutions and organizations in the EU, the creation of a repository of relevant scientific articles, and taking part in a task-force centered around the war in Ukraine.

Presentations from ECREA Post-Conference: Digital Media and Information Disorders

On October 24th, 2022, we were pleased to host the ECREA post-conference Digital media and information disorders: Theorizing and investigating influence operations, impact and contextual factors.

The post-conference invited scholars from around the world and different disciplines to bring forward research focusing on theories and/or empirical studies on digital information disorders e.g., its complex conceptual and contested nature, its contextual factors and associated influence operations, effects and impacts and potential prevention strategies such as digital literacy, fact checking operations and other counter propaganda strategies. The post-conference furthermore focused on nations and regions as contextual factors.
