Economic operators interested in this call are invited to submit a tender via the electronic submission system (e-Submission) available from the TED e-Tendering website.
This call for tenders of up to €4 million is a step to reinforce the efforts of the network of the European fact-checkers and academic researchers to fight disinformation online. The EDMO platform provides media practitioners, media literacy experts, teachers and citizens with resources aimed at increasing awareness, building resilience to online disinformation and supporting media literacy campaigns.
EDMO is also engaged in the development of a framework to ensure secure access to platforms’ data for academic researchers working to better understand disinformation.
EDMO is equipped with national and regional hubs that leverage their knowledge of local information environments to detect, analyse and expose disinformation campaigns in Europe.
EDMO was one of the elements in the Commission’s detailed action plan on fighting disinformation, published on 5 December 2018.
