DIGITAL INTELLIGENCE

Designed by specialised intelligence analysts, the Social Media Intelligence Unit (SMIU) monitors social media data from across Europe. The platform enables civil society users to have a louder voice online. It enables an effective response to disnformation and hate-speech through positive narrative setting.
