Bruxelles, 15/03/2019 - 10:13, UNIQUE ID: 190315_7

The Rapid Alert System (RAS) is an important element of the EU’s overall approach to tackling disinformation and is one of the four pillars of the Action Plan against Disinformation endorsed by the European Council in December 2018.

The Rapid Alert System is set up among the EU institutions and Member States to facilitate the sharing of insights related to disinformation campaigns and coordinate responses. The RAS is based on open-source information and will also draw upon insights from academia, fact-checkers, online platforms and international partners.
