The Journalismfund Europe is inviting applications for research grants for Dutch and Belgian Journalists to strengthen local cross-border, independent and investigative journalism in order to increase the availability of qualitative local news, and at making citizens more aware of local – and often interrelated and global – issues and possible solutions.

With this project, Journalismfund aims at addressing the shortage of local independent journalism by awarding research grants to local investigative journalistic projects in Belgium and the Netherlands and by stimulating the cross-border collaboration. In this way, cities in Belgium and the Netherlands could mutually strengthen each other (e.g. by forming each other’s benchmark) and as such increase the impact of the supported publications.

Funding Information
