The European Investigative Journalism Conference

Thursday June 1: Masterclasses and Hackday

Arrive a day before the conference opens and dive into some learning experiences!

We have three full-day masterclasses that will go into depth on central areas of investigative journalism in Europe. Or you can choose to join the data nerds and help find and clean data sets for you and your colleagues to dig into for stories during and after the conference.
