With this pilot project Journalismfund.eu offers grants for science journalists. It's meant for projects that have great newsworthiness and depth but that cannot be realised in regular media. The projects should be original, innovative and time-consuming and must involve investigative reporting on science and its impact on society.


For who?

Professional journalists

The results of the research must be published in a Dutch-language medium in Belgium.



€ 60.000

In 2021, there is €95,000 to distribute over two application rounds 
The grant programme is subsidised by the Flemish government. 



The last deadline for this year was 5 November 2021.
