EJC launches €1.7m Accelerator with support from News Integrity Initiative & Civil

13 April 2018
Topics:
The Engaged Journalism Accelerator will support newsrooms that put community engagement at the centre of their ownership, reporting, distribution, impact and revenue. Following detailed research, we believe this is one of the most promising paths forward into sustainability for European journalism. The pressures on European newsrooms are growing. By funding innovation in ten to fifteen emerging newsrooms, we hope to boost the whole ecosystem.

The funding comes from News Integrity Initiative & Civil, the Accelerator will go beyond grants too. The programme will offer dedicated coaching and resources to hundreds of journalists in areas of business, product and governance.
