This half-day seminar walks you through the particularities of cross-border, collaborative investigations, with a focus on selecting a topic and an angle, finding your team, and preparing a work plan. The overall purpose of the work plan is to get ready for your investigation – including an application for a work grant. Register now to attend for free!

Monday, October 31 from 13:00 to 16:00 CET.

The seminar will be run by Brigitte Alfter, director of Arena for Journalism in Europe, and Trine Smistrup, journalism trainer and director of the annual Dataharvest – The European Investigative Journalism Conference.

Run by Arena for Journalism in Europe, this Cross-Border Masterclass takes place several months before the next deadline for applications for IJ4EU funding, giving you enough time to prepare a killer proposal. 

NOTE: The second call for IJ4EU applications will open in January 2023.

Registration is open until two days before the seminar.

There will be an additional masterclass on November 15. If you can’t make the October 31 event, feel free to register now for the November 15 masterclass instead.

About IJ4EU

IJ4EU (Investigative Journalism for Europe) is a fund to support cross-border investigative journalism. We provide grants to teams of journalists in Europe investigating topics of public interest.

The IJ4EU fund is managed by a consortium of three organisations: the International Press Institute (IPI), the European Journalism Centre (EJC), and the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF).

IPI leads the consortium and manages the Investigative Support Scheme. EJC manages the Freelancer Support Scheme. ECPMF runs a prize for cross-border investigative journalism and IJ4EU’s annual UNCOVERED conference. ECPMF also runs a legal contingency fund for grantees.

The IJ4EU programme is co-funded as a Preparatory Action by the European Commission (DG Connect). It receives additional funding from Open Society FoundationsFritt OrdFondation Nicolas Puech and the City of Leipzig. The programme maintains complete independence from donors in the selection of projects and strictly guarantees the editorial independence of all grantees.
