1)  Objective

The Call Boosting Fact-checking Activities in Europe aims at supporting projects from independent fact-checking organisations, which play a key role in limiting the negative effects of disinformation on the public discourse and democratic processes. In the context of the ongoing Russia – Ukraine war, and in light of its repercussions across Europe, this Call for Proposals is currently accepting applications that contemplate collaborations with Ukrainian fact-checking and media organisation and/or journalists. Though Ukrainian organisations are not eligible as funded partners, costs pertaining to such collaborations, namely subcontracting costs, will be considered as eligible.

a. Urgent actions: projects designed to increase coverage, depth, and speed of fact-checking activities by organisations that commit to producing regular flows of fact-checks. These actions may have a duration up to 6 months and receive a grant up to €55,000.

b. Scale-up projects: free-lance collaborations within newsrooms and/or the integration of state-of-the-art technologies for content verification and media and social media monitoring. These actions may have a duration up to 12 months and receive a grant up to €80,000.

2) Eligibility

Only individual entities or organisations in a consortium located in the EU, EFTA and UK are eligible.

3) Location

4) Budget

The total indicative allocation is €4,350,000
