Thank you for coming - find the conference review here!

Join us at our conference, participate in a workshop for digital security, network with practitioners and politicians, and learn about the impressive investigations of the IJ4EU grantees.

We will assess the challenges that investigative journalism faces in Europe today and the conditions – political, legal, and financial – that are necessary for investigative journalism to flourish. Find out why investigative journalism is in everyone’s interest – and how we can protect it in a climate where economic needs and political interference are the new normal.

Two years ago, the European Parliament initiated a special fund to be spent exclusively on cross-border investigative journalism, the #IJ4EU. The grants from this fund, launched by the ECPMF and managed by International Press Institute (IPI), were awarded to twelve transnational teams from across Europe. The UNCOVERED conference will give a stage to grantees to present the results of their work.

The event takes place under the patronage of the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Mr Michael Müller.

Places are limited! Please register and please cancel your registration if you can’t come to free up your seat.
Please note: We will take photos and videos of the speakers and audience, which may be posted on our website and social media channels.

Stuttgart Area, Germany
I am a mexican freelance journalist living in Stuttgart, Germany since 2012.
I had professional experience in a news agency, in the social media management of a cultural channel and as a reporter for newspapers and magazines. I dealt with cultural, political, social as well as economic and financial topics. As a reporter, I was involved in team meetings in the prioritization of daily work and was able to deliver creatively written reports on time, even under high time pressure. During the lecturer's work, I got extensive experience in the stylistic, spellingual, grammatical and content improvement of demanding Spanish-language texts.
How did a mexican journalist get the idea to work in Germany and in german?
Bacause of my interest in german literature and language, I decided to relocate my focus to Germany in 2012 and initially got to know the german culture, first as an au pair. After as a volunteer I started a social project year (FSJ/BFD). There I was allowed to work with children of the 1st and 2nd grade, learned basics of didactics and at the same time was able to improve my German. Then I was studying german at the University in Stuttgart.
After a stay of 5 years in Germany, at the end of 2017, I decided to travel through Central America and Mexico. During this time I had the opportunity to work as a journalist again.
Because of the increasing digitization of the media and journalism, I wanted to expand my knowledge in these areas and therefore additionally attended journalistic seminars and workshops in Mexico and Spain in 2018.
At the moment, I work sometimes with differents Media Companies from my country as a freelance and I have an special journalisitic project with the topics Latin America, Migration and Europe.
