Tactical Tech’s “Exposing the Invisible” project is looking for consultants from the European Union who have training and curriculum expertise in the field of investigation, research and data exploration to collaborate with us on creating and localising workshop materials and curricula on a range of investigation methods and topics.
This call and collaboration is part of a one-year long EU-funded pilot project called the “Collaborative and Investigative Journalism Initiative” (CIJI), which will equip independent media outlets and individual journalists with resources, innovative networking infrastructure and standards-based methods that enable them to practice high-quality, ethical and accountable collaborative and investigative journalism. CIJI is carried out in partnership by Free Press Unlimited, jointly with Reporters Without Borders and Tactical Tech and aims to become a network-based initiative that promotes ethical standards, offers training and capacity building opportunities and a fora for collaboration and peer-support.
