Funds available for cross-border investigative reporting [Europe]

Posted on Dec 17, 2019 in Investigative Journalism

Professional journalists who have an idea for research on European affairs can apply for funding. ​​​

Journalismfund.eu is launching the 2020 European Cross-Border Grants to support cross-border investigative journalism in the European Union.

The grants are intended for teams of professional journalists from at least two different countries that are members of the Council of Europe.

A total of EUR175,000 will help investigative reporting that is of relevance to European target groups. Costs must be related to journalistic research, including travel, translation, access to pay-databases or simply time to research.

There will be three application rounds in 2020. The first deadline is Jan. 15, 2020.
