At we strongly believe that diversity in the media landscape is essential to any strong democracy. We have been playing a part in diversifying the landscape in Europe since we launched our first working grant programme for in-depth journalism in 1999.

A few years ago, we decided to be more proactive in propelling, stimulating and facilitating diversity in the media landscape. The best way to do that was by setting up an incubator through which we can offer support to innovative journalistic initiatives.

Investigate Europe

Investigate Europe is a team of nine experienced journalists from eight European countries who research as a multinational team. They share, merge and crosscheck facts – tackling the usual national bias. They point out responsible transnational structures and actors in issues of European-wide relevance to make it possible to hold those in power accountable.

European Investigative Collaborations

The purpose of the European Investigative Collaborations or EIC.Network is the joint reporting and publication of investigative journalism with a focus on European topics to understand how power structures affect European communities.

Mentoring Programme

The aim of is to promote quality journalism by giving journalists the chance to carry out journalistic research projects. supports professional journalists, who have good ideas for cross-border investigations. In that context, we also offer a mentoring programme, where teams of journalists working with the help of a research grant can get the assistance of a mentor. 

Hatched at EIJC & Dataharvest

The European Investigative Journalism Conference & Dataharvest was incubated by for eight years before it became independent. The conference is a place for people to meet, exchange skills and ideas and, ideally, collaborate on stories.
