The Pandora Papers investigation featured more than 600 journalists from 150 news outlets and has unearthed offshore dealings of 35 current and former world leaders and more than 300 other current and former public officials and politicians around the world.

What does one do upon receiving a colossal 2.94 TB of data comprised of 11,9 millions of internal documents? How do you handle such a massive leak securely? What does it take to coordinate the reporting of 600 journalists across the world? How does one structure the research information and organise the findings of such a complex project?

Chief of technology of International Consortium of Investigative journalists (ICIJ) Pierre Romera will join us for a discussion to reveal the details behind the investigation on which he has been working on for the past two years.
