Call for Applications — Journalistic Craft for Neighbourhood

Developing knowledge-based European journalism relating to Europe’s neighbours, through educational activities delivered by the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe

Would you like to deepen your knowledge of contemporary journalism, including on how to fund cutting-edge reporting?
Would you like to know more about value-based and conflict-sensitive reporting or the challenges of new technologies?
Would you like to learn more about the EU and its Neighbours and exchange expert know-how?

The College of Europe in Natolin is developing a unique journalism training project, inspired by countless conversations with media professionals from both EU and ENP countries. If your work touches upon media, you’re more than welcome to apply! Our trainings target journalists, reporters, editors, managers, think-tanks, academic and research institutions, and interested members of civil society.

The project has two stages. All participants will first undergo a set of e-learning courses from April to July 2019. Top e-learning performers (up to 150 in total) will be invited to attend in-person workshops at our College of Europe Natolin campus, and take part in a field visit, in August 2019.

The e-learning courses are offered for free and we also cover travel and accommodation for the in-person workshops and study trip.

The topics we will look into:

  • Disinformation in the media;
  • Open-data and investigative journalism;
  • Multimedia journalism;
  • Value-based and conflict-sensitive reporting;
  • Monetisation, EU funding and financial sustainability.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on board as a participant!

This project is funded by the European Union.
