The new European Media and Information Fund (EMIF) pursues objectives of public interest and provides grants, on a competitive basis, to researchers, fact-checkers, not-for-profits and other public interest-oriented organisations working on disinformation research and strengthening media literacy and fact-checking. This multi-donor fund will operate from 2021 – 2026 initially but may be extended. It will cover actions under 4 categories; those supporting fact-checking; multidisciplinary investigations on disinformation; research studies and sandboxes and actions in support of media literacy. The first call for actions in support of media literacy is expected to close on 1 February 2022. More information about EMIF.
