Other interesting projects in the event included ImAc about immersive accessibility and SOMA (Social Observatory for Disinformation and Social Media Analysis). Following the European Commission Communication on tackling online disinformation, SOMA has been launched to provide support to a European community that will jointly fight disinformation! For that reason, the observatory supports experts in their work against disinformation providing useful infrastructure and connection with a wide community of experts to collaborate in specific tasks.
