The EIJC and Dataharvest, organised by Journalismfund.eu. The conference was first organized in 2011, when European journalists gathered in Brussels to exchange best practices and story ideas.
Media and journalism are in a time of change. Dataharvest EIJC consider this as a wonderful opportunity to apply creativity and try new ways of doing great journalism. Data journalism, cross-border journalism, entrepreneurial journalism, new storytelling methods, new collaborations between scientists and journalists. The finest speakers from successful and important journalistic projects and newsrooms give presentations, head workshops and share their experiences.
Every year on the Pre-Dataharvest Hackathon a team of coders prepares one or several datasets for journalists – including the freshly released data on the EU farm subsidies. During the conference the coders assist journalists and teams of journalists in using the data for stories. Journalists can return to their newsrooms with fresh data for new stories.
Journalists from all over Europe are welcome to register for the program. There is no age restriction.
There is participation fee for the program: early bird (before 1 March 2017) – €110, regular – €150, students – €85. This includes the conference itself, two lunches, coffee and tea (and participation in the Hack Day if wanted).
