BENEDMO is a multidisciplinary hub by and for fact-checkers, media professionals, scientists and other experts in Flanders and the Netherlands. In the next three years, the BENEDMO innovation project will not only detect disinformation campaigns, but also produce and publish factchecks. In addition, a research team will be appointed to analyse different strategies and methods to detect fake news in terms of process, effectiveness and applicability within the European policy and legal framework. BENEDMO fits within the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO), an international network of hubs where experts in the field of disinformation share knowledge and join forces.

BENEDMO has received funding from the European Union under Grant Agreement number INEA/CEF/ICT/A2020/2381738.
