Hi all,

Las week we have launched FactCheckEU, Europe's first crowd-factchecking
platform. In the run-up to the European Parliament elections in May, our
site will monitor politicians' statements on European issues and measure
whether they are getting their facts straight. You can visit our website
at: www.factcheckeu.org and follow us on Twitter

FactCheckEU is born out of the belief that as the EU becomes ever more
integrated, it is increasingly essential to develop watchdogs capable of
monitoring the political debate.

Users have a key role to play on this website: they can upload statements,
verify them alongside the FactCheckEU team and translate them into six
languages. For more details, have a look at the 'community' section and this
You can register and fact-check with us.

The project is run by NumbersEU, a Brussels-based non-profit organisation
set up by PagellaPolitica, Italy's top factchecking website. It is made
possible thanks to a generous grant from the German foundation 'Stiftung

For any inquiries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us!

Kind regards,


Aleksandra Wisniewska
Fact-checker & Social Media Editor
