      Disinformation Track

      We aim to raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of disinformation, and to equip individuals, organizations, and societies with the knowledge and tools to combat it. Our initiatives include research projects, development of anti-disinformation tools, and educational programs.

      Our work is informed by a global perspective, recognizing that disinformation is not confined by geographical boundaries. We have a particular focus on the European context, given the significant challenges posed by disinformation campaigns in this region.

      The Disinformation Track is part of our broader commitment to leveraging digital technologies and insights for the benefit of society. We believe that by shedding light on the dark corners of the digital world, we can help to create a more informed, resilient, and democratic information landscape
