The Investigation Grants for Environmental Journalism is aimed at cross-border teams of investigative journalists and newsrooms to investigate and document illegal, unreported, and unregulated abuse of nature that involves European affairs in and outside Europe.

Next to investigations of environmental issues that transcend borders, the programme can also support and stimulate comparative investigations into local environmental issues and policies between two or more regions or cities. The grants can also offer support to preliminary work in the development of new investigative projects.

Furthermore, the Investigation Grants for Environmental Journalism can cover working time and expenses such as logistics, travel, insurance, access to legal support, translations, access to technology and data sets, etc.

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