Journalism Partnerships shall encourage systemic cooperation between professional news media organisations to improve the viability and competitiveness of professionally produced journalism by supporting the testing of innovative business models and sharing of best practices among peers as well as by supporting innovative journalistic collaborations, standards and formats.

Expected results:

  • Sector-wide networks for the exchange of best practices among news media professionals;
  • Knowledge-hubs for sub-sectors around technical formats (written/online press, radio/podcasts, TV, etc.) and/or journalistic genres (local/regional journalism, public-interest journalism, data journalism, investigative journalism, etc.);
  • Acquisition and improvement of professional skills by journalists as well as business professionals;
  • Increased innovation and creativity in journalistic production processes and distribution processes;
  • Increased interest in journalism, among various social groups, language groups and age groups;
  • Increased viability of journalistically produced content.

Description of the activities to be funded

Collaborative projects in and between any news media (sub)sector and/or genre that aim to enhance cooperation and instil systemic change across the wider news media ecosystem. The proposed activities should be clearly justified and based on the needs of the chosen (sub)sector(s) and the challenges they face. The proposed partnerships are encouraged to involve organisations from countries/regions with different and diverse media capabilities in order to maximise the positive impact on media pluralism.
