Boosting Fact-Checking Activities in Europe

9th Funding Round Open until 31 October 2024

Boosting Fact-Checking Activities in Europe

The "Boosting Fact-checking Activities in Europe" Call for Proposals aims at supporting projects from independent fact-checking organisations, which play a key role in limiting the negative effects of disinformation on the public discourse and democratic processes. Only individual entities or organisations in a consortium located in the EU, EFTA and UK are eligible.


This call is permanently open until February 2025 and its total indicative allocation is €4 350 000. Applications may be submitted at any time and three funding rounds occur every year, in February, June and October.

In the context of the ongoing Russia – Ukraine war, and in light of its repercussions across Europe, this Call for Proposals is currently accepting also applications that contemplate collaborations with Ukrainian fact-checking and media organisation and/or journalists. Though Ukrainian organisations are not eligible as funded partners, costs pertaining to such collaborations, namely subcontracting costs, will be considered as eligible.

The ninth funding round is open until 31 October 2024.




These types of actions are supported under this Call as a means of strengthening the fact-checking ecosystem:

a. Urgent actions: projects designed to increase coverage, depth, and speed of fact-checking activities by organisations that commit to producing regular flows of fact-checks. These actions may have a duration up to 6 months and receive a grant up to €55 000.

b. Scale-up projects: free-lance collaborations within newsrooms and/or the integration of state-of-the-art technologies for content verification and media and social media monitoring. These actions may have a duration up to 12 months and receive a grant up to €80 000.

The Call for proposals details the conditions in which a project may be selected for support (admissibility conditions), the evaluation and award procedure, the reporting and payment arrangements and other elements relevant for the admission of a successful application. Together with the call, several templates are provided to be filled in during the application process or later when a project is approved. All applications are submitted online on this website after registration on the site. All correspondence regarding each application is channeled through the registered email address.
