Cross-community EDMO BELUX Network Exchange

facts matter

Date: Friday 18 March 2022
Time: 14:00 – 16:00

We warmly invite you to a meet-and-greet among the community of researchers, fact checkers, analysts and media literacy professionals countering disinformation in academia, media, government, civil society in Belgium and Luxembourg.

This afternoon session will take the form of two interactive sessions. You can speak your language of preference – we will all do our best to understand!

First: we get to know each other through speed dating. Rehearse your two-minute introduction. Informal yet effective.

Who are you? For which organization do you work? How do you counter disinformation in Belgium and Luxembourg? In which language do you tend to work? What motivates you to tackle disinformation?

Second: we map our cross-community wish lists through (small) group discussions based on the following set of questions:

Which type of disinformation do you typically encounter? Which resources to counter disinformation do you find most useful? What is our most pressing need in countering disinformation in Belgium and Luxembourg?

Would you like to participate? We welcome anyone countering disinformation in their respective fields: research, media, government, civil society through monitoring, fact checking, analysis, media literacy, etc. in Belgium and Luxembourg?

If you’d like to attend in-person, please click here to register. Registration will close on midnight 14/03 as we will foresee some small catering. A few days before the event, you’ll receive an email with practical details (meeting room, where to park, ect).

If you’d like to participate online, please click here to register. We’ll use Zoom and the breakout function to keep it interactive!
