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).

Publication Support Scheme

IJ4EU’s Publication Support Scheme provides financial support of up to €10,000 for cross-border investigations that are already underway. These are projects that need additional, shorter-term support in order for journalists or news organisations to complete and publish their stories.

Publication Support grants are open to teams of journalists and/or news organisations based in at least one EU member state or one EU candidate country. Projects must focus on a public interest topic of cross-border relevance covering at least two countries, and they must aim to reveal new information. The Publication Support Scheme expects to provide €200,000 in grants in 2020.

The Publication Support Scheme operates on a rolling basis. Applications can be submitted anytime between 5 May and 18 September 2020. Applicants can expect a response within four weeks.

The Publication Support scheme is managed by the European Journalism Centre.
