IBERIFIER is an Iberian hub that aims to tackle disinformation in Spain and Portugal by bringing together a consortium of 23 partners, composed of 12 universities, 5 independent fact-checking organisations and publicly-owned news agencies, and 6 leading institutions on strategic analysis, computer and data science, and media research.
With the support of public authorities of both countries, relevant media organisations, several scientific and professional associations, as well as some other stakeholders, the activities of this Action comprise: (1) scientific research and analysis for the security and development of the Iberian digital media ecosystem; (2) factchecking in three languages (Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan); (3) computer and data research aimed at developing systems for early detection of disinformation; (4) strategic analyses about the impacts of disinformation on areas such as politics, economy, social and security issues, science and technology, and the media industry; and (5) development of media literacy, through a set of activities targeted mainly to young people, journalists and citizens in general.
