The European Investigative Journalism Conference

Get ready for the EIJC & Dataharvest 2019 and help us make it happen

It’s time to get ready to come to the EIJC & Dataharvest conference 2019! From May 16-19 in charming Mechelen in Belgium.

Registration opens late this time – we’ll be ready in a few days! And there is an explanation: As of 2019 the EIJC & Dataharvest is a start-up on its own run by Arena for Journalism in Europe.

We’ve been working in the background to make sure we can run this year – but we’ll need all your support: Spread the news, register early, bring in excellent ideas, come as a speaker or trainer, make a donation. If you have employers, make them pay your trip and give a travel stipend to a freelancer or a colleague from a low-income country.

This year we’ll give particular focus to all the excellent local journalism in Europe, we’ll look into how journalists can use statistics, freedom of information requests, data journalism tools. We’ll offer hands-on training, fresh European data sets and the best inspiration of excellent journalism of the past year. And as always we’ll have unique networking with senior and junior colleagues, with networkers and nerds. Read the program outline here.
