The European Media and Information Fund

The European Media and Information Fund provides grants to researchers, fact-checkers, not-for-profits and other public interest-oriented organisations working on disinformation research and strengthening media literacy and fact-checking.

The fund will support projects working on media literacy, online disinformation, fact-checking and academic research into media, disinformation and information literacy and be available to organisations based in European countries, including the EU, EFTA and UK, and whose focus of activities is on the mentioned countries.

Managed by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in partnership with the European University Institute, the launch of the Fund will see an initial €25 million contribution over 5 years made by Google and will work with the European Digital Media Observatory as an independent advisor to the work of the fund.
