The day before the conference, journalists and coders get together for Hack Day to clean and prepare data sets for journalistic use – this year data that are relevant for the food and water theme. During the conference, participants can learn how to understand and use the data after they return to their newsrooms. Come join us, if you want to contribute and bring home your own data sets!
Do you want to get deeper into a subject than is possible during a short conference session? Arrive a day earlier and participate in a full-day master class or seminar! We have three planned, beginning at 10 am:
- “How to investigate the EU recovery funds” with Lise Wittemann, Brussel-based journalist and coordinator of The Recovery Files
- “How to read annual reports and follow the money” with Emanuel Sidea, investigative business journalist with Dagens Industri (Sweden)
- “Working with Open Source Intelligence” – with Benjamin Strick, investigations director, and Benjamin Den Braber, OSINT lead, both at Center for Information Resilience
You register for the master classes as part of your general conference registration – after ordering your general ticket, the master class options come in the next step.
There is a €30 fee to participate in the master classes – this covers coffee and lunch. The trainers are doing this to share their knowledge and skills with the investigative community, and we are deeply grateful for their contribution!
