Under the coordination of The Institute of Journalism in Dortmund, EJTA is cooperating in the creation of an online course on EU cohesion policy. The project is funded by the European Commission with one million euros and is entitled "Covering Cohesion Policy in Europe - Training MOOC for European Journalism Students" (COPE). All universities that train journalists at Bachelor level will have access to the teaching material in the future. The special feature: in addition to English, the course content will also be offered in the respective national language. The project was launched in January at the kick-off event in the Erich Brost House in Dortmund.

COPE aims to provide teaching content on covering EU cohesion policy - policies designed to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union. Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is what a course of this size is called. The project partners are jointly creating such an online course with 14 modules in English, which will then be translated into the national languages of the European Union. In early 2024, the online course will be tested by journalism students at all 27 universities involved in the project. Most of these journalism institutes are a member of EJTA. Read more here.
