The GATE team at the University of Sheffield provided technical support for the build of this dashboard during July 2020. Special thanks go to Kalina Bontcheva, David Wilby, Mark A. Greenwood, Adam Funk, Twin Karmakharm, and Ian Roberts, who provided insights, creativity, and flexibility in an extremely fast-paced sprint.
Several other organisations supported this work. First, we would also like to acknowledge the support of the Aspen Tech Policy Hub, which generously awarded our team a 2020 COVID-19 Challenge Grant for this project. Second, we drew on 9,722 debunks by members of the IFCN and users of the fact checking schema ClaimReview, who heroically rose to the challenge of the infodemic by producing an eye watering amount of fact checks. We thank them for informing this project and countries around the world. Finally, part of the data and technology used for this dashboard was based on previous work by the GATE team, which was partially funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement no 825297 (WeVerify).
