To help data journalists around the world in their ongoing efforts to cover the Russia-Ukraine War, we have organised a half-day online conference tackling how journalists and OSINT experts can use data to report on and explain the conflict.

The aim is to provide insight, resources, case studies, and examples to help journalists find, verify and tell accurate stories from the conflict in Ukraine.
