EU Neighbourhood journalists at UNCOVERED Journalism Conference in Berlin thanks to EU-funded OPEN Media Hub project
January 31, 2019
The OPEN Media Hub is supporting investigative journalists from the EU Neighbourhood to join colleagues from EU media at the UNCOVERED Journalism Conference that is taking place in Berlin today and tomorrow, where they will be able to attend, network with practitioners and politicians, and learn about the impressive investigations of the IJ4EU grantees.
IJ4EU is a new fund launched in 2018 by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) and the International Press Institute (IPI) to support cross-border investigative reporting in the EU. The grants from the fund were awarded to twelve transnational teams from across Europe. The UNCOVERED conference will give a stage to these grantees to present the results of their work.
The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the EU’s two neighbourhood regions – south and east – in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies, through the creation of a network of journalists. It provides skills to journalists and media managers through the fostering of professional networks, the provision of hands-on workshops, of journalist exchanges and support to audio-visual and online production.
