Applications call for IJ4EU Investigation Support Scheme 2020
The IJ4EU Investigation Support scheme will provide support to three types of projects: new investigative projects; new phases of existing investigative projects; or investigative projects in the early stages of developments. If you require funding to complete or publish an existing project, please see our Publication Support scheme.
There will be two calls in 2020 under the Investigation Support scheme.
To be eligible under the IJ4EU Investigation Support Scheme, applications must be sent by teams of journalists and/or news organizations that meet the following criteria:
Projects on all topics will be considered. Moreover, this includes, but is not limited to, corruption, illicit enrichment, and financial crime; security, democracy, and human rights; environment and also climate change; health, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The fund is dedicated to supporting a diverse range of topics and teams across Europe. Basically, the IJ4EU Investigation Support scheme welcomes projects focusing on underreported issues. In addition, teams working in countries where investigative journalism is under pressure, including financial and political pressure, are especially encouraged to apply.
See here examples of projects that previously received IJ4EU funding.
All applications must be submitted in English via the online Award Force platform.
