University of Bergen (UiB) is part of the EU funded project NORDIS – Nordic observatory for digital media and information disorders that was launched on September 1. The European Commission has announced the eight selected national hubs that will become part of the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) network. The network of hubs on digital media will contribute to the fight against disinformation. NORDIS will be an independent Nordic regional hub with all national certified fact-checkers and a university in each of the four biggest Nordic countries Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. The consortium will contribute to EDMO and the European infrastructure of combating disinformation and digital information disorder with a specific welfare state perspective. NORDIS is coordinated by Aarhus Universitet and UiB is responsible for Work Package 3 that will center around innovation and technology. In this WP the researchers at UiB will collaborate closely with fact-checkers and new technology companies as well as other EDMO hubs to analyse user needs and develop new tools for verification of content.
Carl-Gustav Lindén is Associate Professor of Data Journalism at UiB and will be working with the NORDIS project during 2021-2023.
