Join the Dataharvest Conference on May 19-22

Investigative journalism, crossborder collaborations and data journalism are the over-arching themes of Dataharvest – The European Investigative Journalism Conference, which takes place in Mechelen, Belgium on May 19-22. Join the conference, if you teach journalism and would like to be inspired and get into new European networks!
The conference is arranged by Arena for Journalism in Europe, EJTA’s partner organization and coordinator of the Data Journalism Teachers’ online conference on 2021.
Activities begin on May 19: There will be three full-day masterclasses on the EU recovery funds, how to dig into business reports, and OSINT techniques. In parallel, a hackathon will find, clean and polish data sets for the conference theme of Food&Water. And many European journalism organisations have meetings in Mechelen that day in order to join the formal conference opening on May 20.
Aside from the Food&Water theme, the conference on May 20-22 will of course focus on the aftermath of the corona pandemic and the ongoing war in Europe and how to investigate its consequences. But there will also be 3 full tracks of hands-on data skills training, presentations of investigations and their methodology, discussions of FOI and how journalists can use it – and much more.
The program will be online from April 1.
