European Collaborative Journalism Programme (ECJP)

What we do


"We believe in collaboration and the need to support quality journalism."

The European Collaborative Journalism Programme (ECJP) supports crossborder collaboration among journalists from all over Europe.
The twofold programme is offered in cooperation with Arena for Journalism.

Digital transformation is putting the media system under pressure. This affects the quality and diversity of the media landscape but also impedes resource-demanding investigative journalism. At the same time, cross-border stories have become more prevalent such as in the fields of migration, organized crime, pollution or consumer protection. Collaborative journalism provides the means to maintain investigations despite declining resources. It allows to pool resources and expertise, to analyse facts and data jointly and to publish in several media at the same time.

4-days programme:
In the frame of ECJP, experts provide input and training on cross-border collaborative journalism, participants are encouraged to build up a network among each other, to explore and discuss a collaborative story, receive feedback from experts and peers and to reflect their own work practices.

Target group:
Junior and mid-career journalists from all over Europe, freelancers as well as staffers from all media who already have first experiences with collaborative journalism or firmly intend to work in this field.

Dates 2022:
April 25 – April 28 2022: Conference Centre Gut Siggen, Baltic Sea
May 19 – May 22 2022: Follow up-meeting at Dataharvest 2022, Mechelen, Belgium

The deadline for applications for the ECJP 2022 is closed.
The call for applications for ECJP23 will start in September 2023.
