Guidance on Strengthening the Code of Practice on Disinformation

The Commission guidance shows how the Code of Practice on Disinformation could be strengthened to become a more effective tool for countering disinformation. The Code has provided a framework for a structured dialogue between relevant stakeholders, the first one of its kind worldwide, to ensure greater transparency and accountability of platforms’ policies on disinformation.

 
Pilot Project - Digital European Platform of Quality Content Providers (Second Phase)

The main objective of this Call for Tenders (2nd year) is to produce a feasibility study on the opportunities for the creation of media data space. The study should help European policy makers assess the long-term sustainability of such a platform. For this, identifying the features that it should have in order to become a relevant player in the European media ecosystem is key as well as pinpointing the major operational, financial and technological risks that the creation of the platform would face.
