Results Erasmus+ project ERUM (Enhancing Research Understanding through Media)

The ERUM learning modules that are now accessible as Open Educational Resource via https://erum.uni-foundation.eu/:These focus on issues related to mis- and disinformation and allow for an integration into diverse fields of study – journalism included. The learning modules address controversially discussed topics that are prone to false information (such as migration, 5G or global warming), provide general knowledge in relation to “fake news”, conspiracy myths and science communication as well as methodological know-how when it comes to visual analysis, reporting on scientific issues or audiences of scientific information. Further information is available here.

The lessons learnt, the insights gathered, and the resources produced within the ERUM project have been transformed into a set of actionable policy recommendations to tackle mis/disinformation and foster information literacy as well as scientific literacy.  The recommendations target policy makers, higher education institutions and media organisations and present multiple levels of actions that can be addressed by these groups.
