This online training session is restricted to the grantees of the IJ4EU Freelancer Support Scheme.

Data visualisation for investigative reporting offers an opportunity to humanise storytelling and engage newsroom talent and wider audiences in what may otherwise be dense, specialised content. This session will look at how different investigative teams have approached data visualisation and used best practices in design, annotation and graphical forms to invite more readers into the story. 

This interactive online session will be conducted by Eva Constantaras. She is a data journalist specialised in building data journalism collaborations in Europe and in the Global South. These teams have reported from across Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa on accountability issues ranging from broken foreign aid and food insecurity to extractive industries and sanctions evasion. As a Google Data Journalism Scholar and a Fulbright Fellow, she developed a course for investigative data journalism in high-risk environments. Her latest investigation utilises interactive visualisations to explain algorithmic bias. 

This session is part of the coaching and training support that the IJ4EU fund provides to grantees to boost their skills and ensure the success of individual projects.
