  • EU funded


FERMI will exploit a holistic and cross-disciplinary methodology towards a framework that will thoroughly analyse D&FN and their sources, in combination with all the socioeconomic factors that may affect both the spreading of such incidents and their effects on multiple dimensions of society.

Comprising a set of innovative technological developments, FERMI will facilitate EU Police Authorities to detect and monitor the way that D&FN spread, both in terms of locations and within different segments of the society, and to put in place relevant security countermeasures; it will produce and diffuse tailor-made training material designed for i) European Police Authorities, ii) other professionals and stakeholders, iii) EU citizens for combating the spread and limiting the impact of D&FN and increasing digital trust.

The role of Convergence:

Convergence, as the assigned SSH expert for the respective project, will ensure proper monitoring of societal impacts and ethics management during project activities; and for the expected life cycle impact of FERMI at a commercialisation stage, via the deployment of specific methodologies and procedures on which the envisioned product will build on after the project’s end.
