Moderators will ask to speakers to illustrate the EU policy developments on tackling disinformation, such as the Strengthened Code of Practice on Disinformation and the Digital Services Act (DSA). In addition, EDMO will highlight its role in acting as a multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholders platform to support and coordinate activities between relevant experts communities. During the dialogue, speakers will explore the current EU policy measures, the different stakeholders involved and the importance of acting at different levels when tackling disinformation and will discuss how EU has to react towards social media that eventually will not comply with EU prescriptions. The invited speakers will represent the EU institutions, the online platforms (industry), the academia and experts community (EDMO), and the civil society organizations.

Some of the speakers will participate from remote and so the meeting will be hybrid. Only the key note speaker will be allowed to have a presentation, all others speakers will answers to questions. Moderators (on site and remote) will maximize the interaction between the onsite panelist and the remote ones, and between panelists and the audience on site and remote. the meeting will be promoted within the constituencies of the participants (academia, technical community, regulatory boards, civil society) in order to stimulate remote participation and Q&A from remote. Tools for trigger remote participation, such as Menti.com will be used and social media tools such as Mastodon to collect the question to raise to participants
