EDMO Hubs

EDMO Hubs

The eight existing national or multinational hubs cover Ireland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, as well as Norway, in the EEA.

Each national and multinational hub constitutes a network of organisations active in one or several Member States, to provide specific knowledge of local information environments so as to strengthen the detection and analysis of disinformation campaigns, improve public awareness, and design effective responses for national audiences.

By focusing on emerging digital media vulnerabilities and disinformation campaigns relevant to a specific territory and/or linguistic area, each hub represents a crucial source of knowledge on local information environments.

Together with EDMO the hubs form a European multidisciplinary community gathering academic researchers, fact-checkers, media practitioners, and other relevant actors in order to actively detect, analyze and expose disinformation campaigns across Europe.

Each hub will contribute to:

  • Detecting and analysing disinformation campaigns, as well as producing content to support mainstream and local media and public authorities in exposing harmful disinformation campaigns;
  • Organising media literacy activities at national or multinational level;
  • Providing support to national authorities for the monitoring of online platforms’ policies and the digital media ecosystem.

A new call for EDMO hubs is open until 22nd February 2022. Additional hubs will therefore be established in the course of 2022 in order to expand the reach and geographical coverage of the EDMO network across the EU.
