WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
The MediaFutures support programme is looking for artists and startups eager to reshape the media value chain through innovative, inclusive and participatory applications of data and user-generated content.

THE CHALLENGE
The second Open Call addresses the challenge of misinformation and disinformation.

MediaFutures seeks to support novel, unconventional ways for people to engage with journalism, science, and democracy, using approaches and tools from the arts, technology, and innovation. This years’ challenge invites innovative, creative and impactful ideas which address the issues of online misinformation and disinformation in different domains.

These ideas should help counteract the negative effects of misinformation and disinformation across society and help build trust in scientific and democratic institutions. That could mean developing software or hardware to address specific issues; artworks to highlight various aspects of them; or combinations of both. We are particularly keen to receive applications that offer new approaches to include minorities or especially affected countries.

Applications must include details on how these outcomes will be achieved during the six-months MediaFutures support programme, and what impact these will have on the issue they address.

To demonstrate the viability of your project, you should have a clear outline for the data you will require, including feasible strategies to access this data both technically and legally.

WHAT WE OFFER
Apply to get the chance to receive:

  • UP TO €80,000 EQUITY FREE FUNDING FOR STARTUPS
  • UP TO €40,000 FOR ARTISTS
  • TECHNICAL, LEGAL AND ADVISORY SUPPORT
  • DATA AND COMPUTATIONAL RESOURCES
  • MENTORSHIP AND TRAINING
  • NETWORKING AND PEER LEARNING
