Arms manufacturing, cryptocurrency and European brown bears are just some of the topics set to be tackled by 14 cross-border teams awarded funding under the latest call of IJ4EU’s flagship Investigation Support Scheme.
An independent jury allocated a combined €450,000 to journalistic teams hailing from four corners of the European Union and 10 countries further afield.
Run by the Vienna-based International Press Institute, the Investigation Support Scheme allows watchdog journalists in Europe to collaborate on transnational investigations in the public interest.
Lost in Europe's investigation regarding transgender sex workers from Latin America, an as-yet-unseen group of trafficking victims in Europe got €35,750. Our team is very proud and happy to be receiving this helpful fund for the investigation.
