This online seminar helps you refine your investigation idea, find journalists to collaborate with and boost your chances of getting funding.

Run by Arena for Journalism in Europe, this Cross-Border Masterclass takes place six weeks before the next deadline for applications for IJ4EU funding, giving you enough time to prepare a killer proposal.

In this half-day seminar, we will walk through the particularities of the cross-border, collaborative investigation process with a focus on selecting a topic and angle, finding your team and preparing a work plan.

The overall purpose of the work plan is to get ready for your investigation — including an application for a work grant. 

The online masterclass is free to attend.
