Investigation Support Scheme
IJ4EU’s Investigation Support scheme provides financial support to new investigative projects, including projects that have only recently begun or new phases of existing projects. Teams can apply for between €5,000 and €50,000. The Investigation Support scheme expects to provide €800,000 in grants in 2020.
Investigation Support grants are open to teams of journalists and/or news organisations based in at least two EU member states or at least one EU member state and one EU candidate country. Proposed projects must focus on a public interest topic of cross-border relevance and aim to reveal new information.
There will be two calls in 2020 under the Investigation Support scheme.
The first call opened on 5 May 2020. The application deadline was 14 June 2020. Successful applicants will be notified in July.
The second call is expected to open on 10 August 2020. The application deadline is expected to be 18 September 2020.
The Investigation Support scheme is managed by the International Press Institute (IPI).
