If you're planning on applying for one of our cross-border grant programmes it is very likely that you will need a teammate from a different country or continent. 

But how do you find a teammate to collaborate with? Here are some tips.

Journalismfund.eu

Journalismfund.eu places all the published projects it supported on its website. The overview of all journalists involved in this type of supported research is very useful to find potential and experienced partners. You can find the profiles of all the supported journalists here, or look at a map here.

Hostwriter

Hostwriter is an open network that helps journalists to easily collaborate across borders. Join Hostwriter for free, network and collaborate. More info here.

GIJN network

The Global Investigative Journalism Network is an international association of journalism organisations that support the training and sharing of information among investigative and data journalists. They have a great global network of investigative journalists. Subscribe to their Listserv here, introduce your topic and ask if someone would like to collaborate with you.

GIJN also has a great list of journalism associations from all over the world. Find them here.

ICIJ network

Contact the local member of the ICIJ network, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

Award winners

All over the world you have awards for investigative journalism. There is a good chance that you will find journalists with a lot of expertise among the nominees and winners.

Conferences

Visit conferences of investigative journalism or go through the online database of speakers of those conferences.

The EIJC (European Investigative Journalism Conference) & Dataharvest is the most relevant networking event for investigative and data journalists in Europe.

Collaboration between newsrooms: MediaBridge

MediaBridge (mediabridge.org) is set up by two organisations: International Media Support (IMS) and Danwatch. MediaBridge will help to establish collaborations between journalists and media in conflict and postconflict areas with media and journalist groups in Europe and US as well as across regions. The MediaBridge website is currently still under development and expected to be up and running in full scale from te beginning of 2022, but already now you can submit your contact details and your pitch, and you will be contacted by an editor from Mediabridge for a chat about your story and possible collaborations.
