IRIS Academic Research Group

The EPREP Program is collaborating with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the University of Cambridge, Sapienza University of Rome, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, and the City University of London to understand infodemics and promote healthy information ecosystems.

IRIS Academic is a collaborative project founded by some of the world’s leading researchers and institutions who are driving cutting-edge research and multidisciplinary methodologies across four topic pillars: Susceptibility to Misinformation, Interventions to Counter Misinformation, Vaccine Hesitancy, and Managing Infodemics.

Within each of these pillars, the researchers are working to identify and define measures, drivers and solutions that help to understand relationships between susceptibility to misinformation, the spread of misinformation, vaccine hesitance and effective interventions to protect people from misinformation.
