Journalismfund.eu is inviting eligible applicants from Netherlands & Belgium for its Local Local Cross-Border Investigative Journalism Project.

This Local Cross-Border Investigative Journalism Project is a philanthropically supported initiative of Journalismfund.eu. Many philanthropic organisations are locally focused. That is why it is often difficult for them to get involved in European projects. But this new bottom-up initiative makes this more attractive. In this project foundations can step into a local story, but with European impact. The idea is that in every country where a foundation donates to this programme, local journalists can take the initiative to set up a local cross-border investigation. The aim of the Grant Programmes of Journalismfund.eu is facilitating investigative, cross-border and independent journalism in order to promote democracy in Europe by connecting donors and journalists without endangering the journalists’ independence.
