European Parliament: Science-Media Hub to Help Combat Fake News

The spread of fake news is a threat to people’s trust in EU institutions. In response, the European Parliament’s STOA panel introduced the European Science-Media Hub, which allows journalists, scientists and politicians to verify information and exchange views.


Fake news plagues not only politics but the scientific world.... With new technology now part of our daily lives, it's essential to trust that the information we're getting is correct. That's particularly true in the scientific field, which can be highly complex. If I have to think of one example of disinformation in science, I would go back to 2008, where you had the launch of the LHC, the CERN accelerator. People were fearing at the time that it would create small black holes that would swallow the earth. According to a recent survey, 80% of European citizens have already come across false or misleading information online, at least several times a month. This crisis of confidence worries the European Parliament. A negative message can become viral very fast. We realise that we need to response to that by making sure that citizens will have the option to another truth or what we consider to be scientific based evidence. In June 2018, the European Parliament's Panel for the Future of Science and Technology launched the "European Science-Media Hub". A platform designed to inform, educate and bring together journalists, scientists and political decision-makers. The idea is to improve journalist's tools for knowledge and information checking and for networking with scientists. It also offers to political decision-makers a point of contact to exchange views. We, science journalists cover science, which has become very international and we also cover industries, corporations which are also very international, and politics which has become European. So we absolutely need to network internationally internationally to tackle the big challenges of our job. This Media Hub can help us do that. The European Science-Media Hub and science journalists give European citizens credible information from verified sources. It will also monitor the most searched-for scientific subjects online and in the press, sharing trends with the public. It's a crucial step towards a healthier access to information.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
