The European Cross-Border Grant programme (running since 2009) supports professional journalists who have ideas for cross-border investigations and for research on European topics. The stories must be relevant to European target groups.

Projects can include cross-border research, networking between colleagues, and established and innovative investigative methods.

Journalismfund.eu supports costs related to journalistic research for all media. This can include travel, translation, access to pay-databases, or simply time to research.

Next to a grant, teams can also apply for a mentor to provide assistance with either the focus of the investigation or the need for competencies in a specific skill.
