The EIJC19 is not all about journalism. It’s also about meeting colleagues. Mechelen is a small, friendly town of 86,000 people, perfect for networking, since you easily meet the other conference participants on streets and squares, in cafées, pubs and restaurants.
Great journalism grows out of conference networking! At the 2018 EIJC Conference, German reporter Hans-Martin Tillack from Stern met Dutch reporter Ludo Hekman from Lighthouse Reports on a panel. Both had researched how arms from their native countries turned up in Middle Eastern armed conflicts.
Have you worked in a cross-border investigation? If so, help science! Annett Heft from the Weizenbaum Institute at the Freie Universität Berlin asks former participants’ support and experience!

The EIJC & Dataharvest Conference becomes an independent organisation
On 10 September 2018, the board of Journalisfund.eu has decided to make The European Investigative Journalism Conference (EIJC) & Dataharvest a stand-alone venture in its own right, fully independent from Journalismfund.eu. With this decision Journalismfund.eu will also be able to focus more on its core activities, in particular acting as an intermediary body to fund independent, high value, cross-border journalism.
