The European Investigative Journalism & Dataharvest Conference


The EIJC (European Investigative Journalism Conference) and Dataharvest, organised by Journalismfund.eu, is the most relevant networking event for investigative and data journalists in Europe.

The EIJC & Dataharvest 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, 270 in 2015 and 320 in 2016. The most recent edition, EIJC/ Dataharvest 2017, saw some 382 people from 52 different countries attend. The venue is Thomas More Hogeschool in Mechelen, a city 20 minutes outside of Brussels and very easily accessible.
