In collaboration with Google News Initiative, the EFCSN has developed a fact-checking database focused on the 2024 European Elections, called Elections24Check.

This first-of-its-kind database collects and categorises political fact-checks, disinformation debunks, prebunking articles, and narrative reports on transcontinental trends reported by over 40 fact-checking organisations across Europe. The project emphasises checks on claims made related to the 2024 European Elections.

Users can search and filter for articles in different languages, relating to specific countries and political parties, and pertaining to certain topics, such as climate change and security and defence. The goal is to increase cross-country collaboration and act as a resource for European citizens.
Participating members of the EFCSN will also publish Narrative Reports analyzing the data for trends in mis and dis information during the elections, and researchers and journalists can also request access to an in-depth data set for their own analysis.

With the support of Meta, the EFCSN will conduct training sessions to help train fact-checkers across Europe on best practices, new techniques and essential tools for identifying AI generated and digitally altered content. The project will also include a media literacy campaign to raise public awareness of how to spot this type of content.

Fact-Checking Incubator

With the support of Porticus, the EFCSN has created a mentorship program for young fact-checking organisations, pairing mentees with verified members of the EFCSN acting as mentors.

The program will include 7 training sessions to help the organisations expand their fact-checking capacities and establish best practices, as well as prepare them for the EFCSN’s application process. Participating mentees also will receive a grant and fee waivers to encourage further engagement with the EFCSN.

For both mentors and mentees, it provides networking opportunities and strengthens the cross-border connections between fact-checking organisations across Europe.
