    Goals / Remit

    Reset's mission is to protect the integrity of democracy from the threats posed by digital media technologies. We work alongside partners in four areas we believe will be instrumental in aligning the interests of Big Tech companies with democratic values. We are developing a public policy agenda to ensure that these companies better serve democracy; supporting researchers investigating harmful technology and potential solutions; collaborating with technologists designing ways to empower users and offer alternative products; and partnering with organisations informing the public about problems in information markets and how they can be addressed.

    Main EU files targeted

    Policy development and legislation pertaining to democracy and digital media platforms, including issues of disinformation and harmful content, data privacy, competition, and digital literacy. For example, we are engaged on:

    - Digital Services Act
    - Digital Markets Act
    - European Democracy Action Plan
    - E-privacy
    - Data Strategy
    - Artificial Intelligence
    - EU Code of Practice on Disinformation
    - EU Code of Conduct on Hate Speech

    8 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
