BRUSSELS - Yesterday, the General Assembly of Journalismfund.eu vzw decided to change the name of the organisation.

From now on, the organisation will be called Journalismfund Europe to communicate its focus in a broader spectrum than the countries of the European Union. In fact, this is not new. Since 2009, when the organisation first launched the European cross-border grants programme, we have always strived to promote living democracies across the entire European continent through supporting in-depth journalism. Therefore, the name change better reflects our long-standing ambition to promote the inclusion of all European countries and also underlines our independence from governments and thus from the EU.

BRUSSELS - The new grant programme Local Media for Democracy is launched today; a pilot media funding scheme that will inject €1.200.000 financial support to local, regional and community media who are struggling to serve the public interest in the so-called “news deserts” areas in Europe.
