JournalismFund Europe launches an open call for its PluPro project which is co-funded by the European Commission (Creative Europe), Limelight Foundation and Vereniging Veronica. The programme is managed by two organisations led by Journalismfund Europe (Belgium) in collaboration with Transitions (Czech Republic).

What is it?

The PluPro project is the continuation of Journalismfund’s award-winning European Cross-border grant programme that has been running since 2009 and the continuation of Journalismfund’s European Local Cross-Border grant programme. On top of the existing grants, mentoring and scholarships, it now includes an additional programme for training of newsrooms and journalists.

The programme will consist of:

  • A grant, mentoring and scholarships programme for European cross-border investigative journalism which has been running since 2009 (ECB)
  • A grant, mentoring and scholarships programme for European cross-border LOCAL investigative journalism which has been running since 2022 (CBLocal)
  • Newsroom training, subgrants for two cohorts of newsrooms with mentoring
  • A cross-border investigative journalism (online) training programme for professional journalists
  • A follow-up and a wide dissemination of the supported stories among the European public, and of the learnings and knowledge among the journalistic community across Europe.
For whom?

Teams of journalists and/or independent media preferably from two European countries are eligible to apply. At least 80% of your requested budget should go to journalists/media from EU countries. As of tradition, Journalismfund offers “matchmaking assistance” to journalists  and media looking for a partner in another country. Journalismfund has a database of nearly 11,000 journalists and 2,800 media companies.

Budget

The total budget of this two-year project is about 3.3 million euro with 90% supported by the EU under the Creative Europe Programme (CREA). Limelight Foundation and Vereniging Veronica will cover the remainder of the budget.

The deadline for applications is April 25, 2024.
