Dataharvest, The European Investigative Journalism Conference


Dataharvest/EIJC, The European Investigative Journalism Conference organised by Journalismfund.eu, is the most relevant networking event for investigative and data journalists in Europe. Dataharvest/EIJC 2017 will take place on Thursday 18, Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday morning 21 May 2017 in Mechelen. Conference hashtag is #EIJC17.

Dataharvest EIJC was first organised in 2011, when some 30 journalists gathered in Brussels to exchange best practices and story ideas. In 2012, the number of participants more than doubled to about 95, a number that increased even further to 150 in 2013, 194 in 2014 and 270 in 2015. The most recent edition, Dataharvest/EIJC 2016, saw some 320 people from 41 different countries attend. The venue is Thomas More Hogeschool in Mechelen, a city 20 minutes outside of Brussels and very easily accessible.
