Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, SocialTruth will benefit individual users, by checking the reliability of Social Media content and stopping misinformation in its tracks, and will help media organisations, content authors and journalists to improve their investigative resources with a better option to crosscheck different multimedia sources and create a more sustainable quality and security-oriented web and social media ecosystem.

The functionalities of SocialTruth will be tested and assessed in four hands-on trials in different European sites and settings, addressing a wide range of end-users, use cases and market requirements, and in 2021, after 3 years of efforts and tests, it will be made available to the wide community.

SocialTruth’s consortium includes:
- 3 partners from the world of research and university: ICCS – Institute of Communications and Computer Systems; UTP-University of Sciences and Technology; LSBU-London South Bank University;
- 5 industrial and commercial partners: Thales; Expert System, Qwant, Tecoms, Zanasi&Partner;
- 3 end-users as facilitators for an early implementation of the system: Adnkronos; DeAgostini Scuola; InfoCons – from 6 different European countries, namely Greece, Poland, France, Italy, Romania and the UK.
