Civitates: Call for Proposals: Improving the Digital Information Ecosystem

This request for proposals aims at improving the digital information ecosystem.
Civitates is a consortium of 16 foundations that want to encourage European civil societies to build on knowledge and work across a range of initiatives that can help identify and advocate for targeted responses to specific problems of the current and future digital environment. Adessium Foundation is one of the co-founders.

Funding is available for independent organizations that seek to:
• Analyse the effect of digitization on the quality of the public discourse in Europe;
• Expose issues impacting the quality of public discourse and democratic fabric in Europe; or
• Improve the functioning of the digital information ecosystem (role of e.g. the technology platforms, the digital advertising industry, political actors) and its regulatory environment through advocacy initiatives.
