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.
