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.

Investigative journalism reveals information that others would rather be kept hidden. Two IJ4EU grantees share their insight after conducting cross-border investigations into two tension-filled subjects: climate change denial and the financing of far-right parties.

Climate Change Denial Networks in Europe – This month-long investigation tracked down climate change deniers in political parties, think thanks, and parliaments across Europe. “The network of climate change deniers is broad – and doesn’t want to be revealed.” https://www.investigativejournalismforeu.net/projects/climate-change-denial-networks-in-europe/

EU Funding for the Far Right – As the 2019 EU Parliament elections approach, a multicounty investigation is shedding light on the contradictions of nationalist politicians who criticize the expenses of the European Union, but push the bloc’s expense rules to obtain funding for themselves.
