The IBERIFIER consortium aims to develop a media observatory to fight misinformation in Spain and Portugal. IBERIFIER is one of the eight regional nodes in Europe within the framework of the Digital Media Observatory (EDMO), whose objective is to develop a multidisciplinary platform to address the challenge of digital disinformation in Europe and its consequences.
This platform will be a means of collaboration between verifiers and researchers that will allow addressing disinformation under criteria of excellence, independence and long-term sustainability. It will offer its services to digital media, social networks, advertisers and public institutions.
