The OPEN Media Hub is supporting investigative journalists from the EU Neighbourhood to join colleagues from EU media at the UNCOVERED Journalism Conference in Berlin in January 31- February 1, 2019, where they will be able to attend, network with practitioners and politicians, and learn about the impressive investigations of the IJ4EU grantees.
Two years ago, the European Parliament initiated this special fund to be spent exclusively on cross-border investigative journalism. The grants from the fund, launched by the ECPMF and managed by International Press Institute (IPI), were awarded to twelve transnational teams from across Europe. The UNCOVERED conference will give a stage to grantees to present the results of their work. Topics vary from continuing the work of murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, to the misuse of EU funds in Romania and Bulgaria, and the disappearance of 10,000 migrant children in Europe – to name but a few.
