Due Date: 3.5 2018. “Investigative reporting which reveals facts in the public interest protects democracy. Stories which uncover corruption, financial crime, human rights abuses and environmental damage are rarely nowadays confined to a single state. Such journalism is complex and costly at a time when the news business everywhere has been put under pressure by digital disruption.
A fund of up to €450,000 has been launched by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom and the International Press Institute (IPI) to help cross-border investigative research in the EU. In 2018, teams of investigative reporters in at least two EU countries can apply for grants up to a maximum of €50,000.”
