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.

Executive Director
Jesper Nymark is the executive director & editor for the Danish investigative media and research-centre Danwatch that over the last ten years has produced award-winning in-depth journalism on global issues.
Danwatch’ journalistic focus ranges from corruption, tax-heavens, investments and shipping, to ITC-, textile and food-production as well as the agro-industry, especially regarding companies, investors and states’ activities, supply chains and impacts on human rights and the environment. The journalistic investigations have prompted political inquiries and hearings both nationally and internationally and has influenced policy changes at some of the biggest multinational companies.

As a journalistic organisation Danwatch works with a collaborative approach, based on the belief that investigative journalism is, increasingly, becoming a collaborative effort – both between local and international medias and journalists, as well as with civil society, tech-innovators and whistle-blowers.
That means that Danwatch today works closely together with both local journalists and major international news organisations in cross-border collaborative and have built up a strong network of investigating journalists, local medias, CSOs and contacts in several countries.

Today Danwatch’ media partners range from The Guardian, Spiegel, Danish Broadcasting to local medias and journalists in hard-to-reach places like Myanmar, Afghanistan and Cambodia, along with international journalistic networks as OCCRP and European Investigative Collaborations.
