The Co-Inform project included top universities and SMEs from 7 European countries and reached its conclusion in July. The project aimed to co-create tools that would foster critical thinking and media and information literacy for a better-informed society. These tools stemmed from the needs and misinformation challenges of citizens, journalists and policymakers; they were iteratively designed and evaluated with policymakers, journalists, and citizens in three different EU countries (Austria,Greece, Sweden).
