Pop Up Newsroom
Pop-Up Newsroom was founded in 2017 by Dig Deeper Media and Meedan and is an innovation framework for newsrooms that are changing the way they collaborate, communicate and engage audiences through new tools and training. Our structured approach to innovation — both technological and editorial — is unique.
The Pop-Up Newsroom team have been involved in leading a number of large, high-profile social monitoring and verification projects since 2016: from Electionland in the US, to CrossCheck in France, #GE2017 in the UK and #Verificado2018 in Mexico. In 2018 and 2019 we have Pop-Up Newsrooms planned to aid election coverage in Sweden, Latvia, India and for the European elections. We are also planning Pop-Up Newsrooms to improve innovation in social monitoring, digital news gathering, disaster coverage and local journalism across Europe.
The Credibility Coalition is a diverse, interdisciplinary community committed to improving information ecosystems and media literacy through transparent and collaborative exploration. Rather than jointly deciding whether an article is “credible” or “not credible” or endorsing any single index or evaluation of credibility, the Credibility Coalition fosters the development of a framework around which credibility can be discussed and interpreted.
Our goal is to provide a range of indicators that can be used by a person — or a system — to gauge if an article can inform or educate that person (or whoever the audience is likely to be).
Digital Health Lab
Equal access to quality health information is becoming an increasingly complex problem to address. 80 percent of internet users now search for health-related information online, influencing health decisions, behaviors and health outcomes for populations on scales larger than ever before. But does the way we search for health information affect the quality of information we access? Is good online health information equally accessible to everyone? Do online databases about our health actually represent our offline communities? And how does the quality of the online health information that communities have access to impact health outcomes?
At Meedan’s Digital Health Lab we design, develop, test and iterate upon participatory methodologies and inclusive design approaches to improve information equity, prioritizing representation the datasets that inform digital health interventions.

The Content Moderation Project
The Content Moderation Project is an ongoing collaboration that brings together industry, academia, policy, and civil society groups to develop clear pathways to responsible content moderation for online platforms. This working group engages with the operational intricacies of content moderation systems and their intersections with platform policy, product development, human rights, and governance. A core value of this group is grounding our efforts in the work of moderation, connecting critical perspectives with the current challenges and operations of practitioners in content moderation.
Our goal is to standardize knowledge across the industry by developing vocabularies, taxonomies, and a body of research to enable informed, actionable discussions between different stakeholders, disciplines, and the public.
