This is a growing group dedicated to fostering the exchange of ideas, information, and feedback on our Local Cross-border Journalism grant programme on investigative journalism. Join us and use the space to interact as well to connect with like-minded journalists and find partners for your next cross-border investigations.
Four European organisations launched Local Cross-border Journalism grant programme, which aims to strengthen cross-border, local investigative journalism across the continent. This programme will offer grants to journalists interested in local, cross-border investigative journalism; training and mentoring in various aspects of investigative journalism; and a mini-MBA for local news media executives. The resulting stories aim to create awareness among local journalists and citizens that local or regional topics could also have an international dimension to it, and vice versa, and to understand that European topics could have repercussions down to the local level.
