The ERUM project aims to develop a relevant transversal educational offer on the topic of “quality of information between mis- and disinformation today” for higher education students who contribute to the shaping of the present and future of the information and knowledge society. It also brings about a shift in the way higher education institutions and media are collaborating vis-a-vis evidence-based and research communication.

The core objectives of the project lie in the quality of information today, between mis- and disinformation or so-called “fake news”:

  1. To improve the educational offer on the topic of quality of information in higher education and equip students with transversal skills that are necessary for the exercise of democratic citizenship;
  2. To foster structured collaboration between higher education and media and contribute to the policy discussion about the role of universities and media in the knowledge and information society;
  3. Improve the quality of information with regards to research-based communication.
