2020 CEF Telecom call - European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) (CEF-TC-2020-2) CEF-TC-2020-2-EDMO Closed!


The next phase of EDMO, which is the subject of this call, aims to create national or multinational hubs for research on digital media. A national/multinational research hub is a network of organisations (e.g. academic organisations, independent fact-checking organisations, media organisations and other relevant organisations), active in one or several Member State(s). In the context of this call, the purpose of these research hubs is to gather knowledge regarding online disinformation and exchange results of scientific research. These national/multinational hubs will focus their journalistic investigations and research activities around emerging digital media vulnerabilities and disinformation campaigns, which are of special relevance within the territory and/or linguistic area in which they will operate.


Each proposed action must cover all of the following activities:

  • Creation/extension of national or multinational research hubs on digital media
  • Detection, analysis and disclosure of harmful disinformation campaigns at national, multinational and EU level, and analysis of their impact on society and democracy
  • Media literacy activities at national or multinational level
  • Cooperation with national authorities for the monitoring of online platforms’ policies and digital media ecosystem
