The latest funding under the IJ4EU Publication Support Scheme will help journalists complete ongoing collaborative projects.
The IJ4EU fund has selected 14 additional projects under its Publication Support Scheme, allocating €130,000 to cross-border investigations that are already underway and need a final boost to reach publication.
Altogether, the Publication Support Scheme has assisted 24 projects in various stages of completion this year with a total pot of €204,500. This comes in addition to €864,000 in funding allocated to 25 new cross-border projects under the IJ4EU’s Investigation Support Scheme this year.
The Publication Support Scheme grants of up to €10,000 to offer short-term support for journalists in EU member states and candidate countries to get their collaborative projects over the finish line, while the Investigation Support Scheme provides grants of up to €50,000 to launch new projects.
The latest 14 grantees were selected after the Publication Support Scheme closed on 18 September 2020. They involve freelance and staff journalists as well as news organisations from 16 countries on topics ranging from the environment and public health to organised crime.
