The EU-funded MediaFutures support programme has launched a call for proposals for artists and start-ups from the media field, including from Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, working with data and willing to make data exploration both entertaining and informative.
This year, MediaFutures seeks to support projects helping counteract the negative effects of misinformation and disinformation across society and help build trust in scientific and democratic institutions. That could mean developing software or hardware, creating artworks, or combinations of both.
The programme intends to disburse up to €80,000 to start-ups and up to €40,000 to artists. Selected candidates will also get technical, legal, and advisory support, mentorship and training as well as promotion through the EU events and communities.
The deadline for applications is 27 January.
