T6 Ecosystems is one of the partners of a project funded by the European Commission to tackle disinformation on social media: SOMA. Among others, the aim of the project is to promote the collaboration among the stakeholders interested in the issue (e.g researchers. Fact checkers, journalists, etc.) and to provide a platform and tools to facilitate the discussion among the parties and the joint verification of the contents. Recently, SOMA has been officially inserted in the timeline developed by the EC on its strategies to fight disinformation together with other relevant important steps.
T6 published a brief ovierview on the European Commission’s plan to tackle disinformation which is available here.
