BERLIN - Congratulations to our partner Investigate Europe who were just awarded the "Hans-Matthöfer-Preis" for their publication on BlackRock's investment. The prize recognises "new answers to the big economic and social challenges". 

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.

Journalismfund.eu allows them to investigate stories thoroughly and independently, by operating as a firewall between donors and journalists. This enables the journalists to focus on their prime goal ‘investigative journalism’ and to be rid of the administrative and financial burden. As such, Journalismfund.eu provides an incubator to allow Investigate Europe to further develop and to become established while simultaneously guaranteeing full independence from the donors.

BRUSSELS - On 2 June 2020, the Flemish Government took a final decision on the amount of emergency funds to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes support to Journalismfund.eu, via the Fonds Pascal Decroos project, for local projects of freelance journalists who can rely on few other support measures.
