We are pleased to call the journalist association Netzwerk Recherche an cooperation partner of this year's #M100YEJ on "How to finance independent journalism – education, platforms, business models” (please click here for more information). Netzwerk Recherche has launched a founding initiative in the area of non-profit journalism in 2016 and is currently planning further training opportunities for initiators of journalistic projects. The cooperation includes the provision of suitable lecturers, knowledge transfer and exchange of experience, networking with research journalists and consulting future founders of journalistic initiatives. The focus will be, among other things, on securing journalistic independence for the founders and developing sustainable financing models. Workshop participants can also train to be trainers themselves, so that they can teach what they have learned to those seeking journalistic education and ongoing training in their home countries.

A big thank you to the Federal Foreign Office and the ZEIT Foundation for supporting this year's M100 Young European Journalists Workshop!

The workshop provides 15 young journalists from the countries of the Eastern Partnership and Russia the opportunity to get introduced to various financing options for journalism, which will be considered together on the basis of concrete examples. This also includes analysing which models work in the specific conditions of individual countries, and which do not.
Application deadline is 12 June! Please find here the application call.
