Funded by the America for Bulgaria Foundation*, the CoDE project spans a three-year period, running from 2023 to 2026. Its overarching objective is to consolidate and implement best practices in analysing the information environment and society, emphasising the development of tools, training programmes, and collaborative frameworks to foster an effective ecosystem.

Throughout its duration, the project will engage teams from the university and partner organisations to establish a network for collaboration and innovation in the realm of information analysis. Implementation will progress through various stages, encompassing analysis, conceptualisation, rationalisation, and demonstration of results.

Direct stakeholders in the CoDE project include media organisations, academic institutions, non-governmental organisations, representatives from the business sector, government institutions, and society at large.
