Connecting the next generation of European journalists

Universities and training institutions working towards a strong journalistic future


EJTA appreciates all the work and the input of this important project on creating a MOOC to study the European Cohesion Policy. Because the conditions for EJTA’s participation in the consortium have changed we feel the project won’t benefit anymore from EJTA’s active role as it is now and from 1 September 2023 onwards EJTA refers some of its tasks back to the project consortium.

We will continue to fully support the project as a disseminator and silent partner.

At the AGM in Vienna (19 October 2023) EJTA members will receive an update on the state of affairs of COPE from the project’s coordinators.


The coordinators of the DESTIN project (Journalism Education for Democracy in Ukraine: Developing Standards, Integrity and Professionalism) which EJTA participated in between 2019 and 2022,  received official word from the European Education and Culture Executive Agency that they have graded the project as 'VERY GOOD', which is the highest possible grade.

In this project one of the aims was for Ukrainian journalism schools to join an already existing professional educators network in Europe and as such we welcomed  the Ukrainian Forum for Educators in Media and Journalism (UFEMJ) into EJTA in 2020.

We’re very happy with the project’s final grade and even more with the active participation of Ukrainian Media and Journalism Schools into EJTA.

EJTA wants to consolidate this collaboration with the UFEMJ in the future and hopes to welcome many Ukrainian participants in our conferences and activities.


Message from the board


The board and the director of EJTA would like to express their sympathy and solidarity to our Ukrainian colleagues, journalism students, journalists and citizens.

We strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.


In these difficult times it's not possible to continue our cooperation with Russian institutes of journalism teaching.

Journalism requires verification, ethical responsibility and integrity. We have to raise journalists to report, explain, contextualize, and debunk in order to inform our societies with truthful information, and contribute to democratic debate.  

Our weapon is our professionalism and collaboration on truth telling.

Nadia Vissers, director
