Seminar: Get started with data journalism
Data journalism has been the posterchild of progressive investigations for the past decade in Europe and Dataharvest has been its herald. In 2019, we offer a one-day data journalism masterclass for seasoned reporters and editors, who have yet to integrate data discovery, negotiation, analysis and transparency in their storytelling and reporting toolkit. In a step-by-step workshop, we’ll piece together how data can take your reporting far and above anecdotal evidence; how to source information and data from various jurisdictions; and how to analyse and summarise it for original and versatile reporting.

Experts on the topic Hristio Boytchev and Ángela Bernardo Álvarez will help you find stories in the data for your own country. Interested? Join us on Dataharvest Arena!
Housing Data Challenge: Home, sweet home… Or rather these days: home, sweet expensive and unaffordable home! All over Europe, the contexts and reasons are different but the outcome is the same: access to decent and affordable housing is becoming increasingly difficult except for the wealthiest. We will dive into rental and property prices, big landlords, evictions, Airbnb and tourist apartment, social housing, empty homes, homelessness and other issues regarding housing; and also into data that relates to housing (like income and health indicators).

Keynote: Billions from Russia whitewashed through Danish bank
Journalist Eva Jung from Danish newspaper Berlingske opens this year’s EIJC & Dataharvest with a keynote on how she and two colleagues at Berlingske uncovered one of history’s biggest money laundering cases that ended costing top management their jobs, had the shares of the bank dwindling 13 billion euros downwards and sending Danish and European authorities on a tightening-up mission. The Danish team cooperated closely with the Organized Crime and Corruption reporting Project (OCCRP) and other media on leaks and big scale data analysis. The €200 bn case of Denmark’s biggest lender Danske Bank showed how cash from Russia and former Soviet states flushed effortlessly through the bank’s Estonian branch with no one acting on the close ties to the dictatorship of Azerbaijan and allegedly the FSB and members of the Putin family. Meanwhile the banks top management ignored warning after warning showcasing the problems. The story is part of a larger picture of big Nordic banks involved in suspected large scale money laundering activities, such as the recent Nordea and Swedbank revelations. Eva will share her experiences – from the inception of the story and the research and all the way to the extensive follow up that ensued. The project is nominated for the European Press Prize.

What you and I keep doing wrong when searching the web
Learning from your own mistakes is a good idea and vital if you want to improve. The workshop will give an overview on common mistakes when searching information online. Marcus Lindemann will draw from his own experience and from typical mistakes of colleagues during his trainings. Once you have found what you searched for, it is important not only to analyse your method (usually you are not simply "lucky" to find something) but also to check - given the results - what other methods would have been helpful. The session will cover common (mis)use of Google search but also show searches that were solved with a lot of effort that could have been avoided.

Making bottom-up work: From local reporting to EU decision-makers
Local journalism reports on the realities on the ground - while often those having the decision-making power are far 'above' at the national and increasingly at the European level. How to report on local issues so that decision-makers at the national and European centres of power are alerted? How can a local media outlet reach out to a media editor addressing EU or other international officials? What's the experience of local journalists bringing such topics forward? We'll discuss how to improve methods, ideas and networks to give local reporting greater visibility and impact - including at the European level.

Your neighbour’s grandma or an offshore landlord? Who owns our homes?
More and more people are realising, sometimes with a shock, that their landlords are big investment funds and wealthy individuals, which are increasingly investing in -and sometimes speculating with - housing and also commercial property. In this session, we'll hear about the German non-profit newsroom CORRECTIV's ongoing investigative project “Who owns Hamburg / Berlin / Düsseldorf?”, in which they collaborated with OpenCorporates. To their surprise, they found out many landlords were business people and companies registered in offshore tax havens. The project has now extended to Berlin and Düsseldorf.

#Europe1DegreeWarmer: making global warming data local
Launched in September 2018, the first collaborative investigation by the European Data Journalism Network (EDJNet) analysed over 100 million meteorological data points from 117 years of weatherdata for 558 entities in Europe. Several challenges were faced: how to make a global issue local? How to find common entities to assign data to across borders? How to produce content on this scale? Nicolas Kayser Bril and Leonard Wallentin, data analysts and curators of the investigation, will tell how they made it and will show how to use the database created. The impact of making data local was indeed relevant: over 100 outlets across Europe have republished or have adapted the story in 11 languages to date.

Unveiling fraud in care for the elderly
“You might never see your child again… if you call the labour inspection”. What goes on behind the neat façade of a Belgian-Bulgarian elderly care business? A group of young Belgian and Dutch reporters started digging into Seniorcare24, a firm that flies in cash-strapped Bulgarian women to take care of Belgian elderly around the clock. They joined up with senior Bulgarian journalist Stanimir Vaglenov - an expert on crime and corruption – and soon find themselves uncovering a fraudulent scheme of labour exploitation. Their work showed how vulnerable Bulgarian women pay the price for a failing labour law enforcement across Europe.

Ghost offices, expense secrecy and the right to know
In September last year a large group of journalists lost a case in the European Court of Justice. They had asked for access to documented expenses by members of the European Parliament (MEPs), who each receive 4000+ Euros per month to keep an office in their home country. The journalists had documented that many of these offices do not exist. The Court ruled, that the MEPs’ right to privacy trumped the right to access to documents, although the costs are carried by the European taxpayers. So what now?
As the EU-court has ruled that privacy overrules transparency in the EU-institutions, how do we move forward? Accept and adapt? Challenge the ruling? Turn reporting into activism? Find new strategies to make legislators accountable? Join the discussion an let’s shape the strategies for tomorrow today.

Every breath you take: reporting on air quality and pollution
While air pollution in European cities and towns continues to exceed EU and WHO limits and guidelines and keeps posing a danger to human health and the environment (according to the European Environment Agency), the issue doesn't feature too prominently in most mainstream media. Reporting on air quality may be challenging a challenge for some media given the complexities of the issue and the lack of hyperlocal data. But local journalism and crowdsourcing of local data are well suited to reporting on air quality and pollution. In this session we'll hear about a project carried out by Flemish newspaper De Standaard, in which the journalists teamed up with Antwerp University, the Flemish government and research organisation VITO to crowdsource data from 20,000 citizens and then presented it a visual and very informative way.

Strength in numbers: setting up an investigative network of local journalists
How do you establish a large network of local investigative reporters, working together across media and across a country in the public interest and using common datasets? The London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism set out to do so in 2017, when it established the Bureau Local, which today has around 1,000 members spread all over the UK and has published more than 350 stories. Last year, with the help of the Bureau Local, the German non-profit newsroom CORRECTIV followed suit and set up its own network for collaborative local journalism: Correctiv.Lokal. How did they do it? In this session, Megan Lucero, director of the Bureau Local, will share their blueprint to help other newsrooms and organisations set up their own investigative networks.

European weapons are used in conflicts, civil wars and human rights violations. Which are the routes they take, and how does this trade circumvent international law?

The Implant Files documented huge flaws in the approval procedures for medical implants and other devices, using FOI. The journalists involved collected more than 8 million health records, related to these devices - recall notices, safety warnings, legal documents and corporate financial filings. ICIJ and its media partners submitted more than 1,500 requests for information to governments around the world. How do you use FOI tactically in an investigation like this?

The void after publication of a big investigation
When a crossborder team finally publishes after a long and often exhausting research with typically long working hours ahead of publication, comes the day after. On that day the individual journalist is suddenly ripped off his or her close international team colleagues of the past weeks and months. Marcos Garcia Rey, investigative editor at El Confidencial in Madrid, Spain, and active member of the ICIJ for years, points out three considerations for “the day after”: journalistic, psychological and legal/defensive. Marcos would like to address this aspect of crossborder collaborative journalism further and develop the tool box for journalists in crossborder teams.

From local stories to big impact: the case of Housing
German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung managed to collect data from 57,000 people and around 3,000 stories for a project to report on the rental market. Long, in-deep stories featuring rich data visualisations showed how broken the rental market has become, and contributed to change the conversation about housing in Germany.
Last year in the UK, the Bureau Local learned that no official body counted the number of homeless people who die and t that the number was around 450 deaths per year. The bureau set out to tell the human stories behind that number. The result was 94 local stories published all over the UK that paint an amazing and terrifying picture about access to housing in Britain. The findings sparked outrage amongst homeless charities and prompted the Office for National Statistics to start producing its own figure on homeless deaths.
Marseille has also become known for his crumbling housing infrastructure. Last November eight people were killed when two buildings collapsed near the old port. How could a city that attracts so many tourists allow its own residents to live in such poor conditions? That's what local investigative media outlet Marsactu set out to find out. Dozens of articles later, last month the French prime minister, Marseille municipality and the national agency of urban renovation signed a protocol of 117 million euros to invest in social housing.
In this session, we'll hear from the people behind those three reporting projects.

Selecting the big cross-border story
Before embarking on months of research, how do you know that it is the right story? At Investigate Europe Juliet Ferguson has developed a checklist for team members to go through when preparing the pitch of a new topic for the team. In the EIC network a model has evolved, where EIC journalists have become "network editors" in their own newsroom, so a 2-way pitching system was developed to constantly bring stories from the newsroom to the network, or from the network to the newsroom. Nils Hanson has decades of experience of pitching and selecting topics for investigative stories and has a systematic approach to story selection. How much do you need to convince partner media? What is a good theme for at big cross-border investigation, and how do you pitch it?

Data journalism might seem still a fancy, laborious and expensive business, that only big international media outlets like The New York Times or The Economist can afford. But very often data at local level is widely available and more reliable. So what are the challenges of data journalism done at local level? How can we promote more local data journalism? What are the opportunities for data journalism at local level? How can editorial groups and newsrooms put resources together to work better? What are examples of local and small newsrooms making excellent data journalism?

Housing across Europe: what are the rules of the game?
Housing law and regulations are spread across the local, national and European levels, and differ from city to city and from country to country. And access to decent and affordable housing is recognised as a human right in the Universal Declaration, in other international conventions and in many national constitutions – yet rulings about housing at European courts are often based on consumer law. In this session, we will hear from Sergio Nasarre, director of the UNESCO Housing Chair at the University Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona, about housing law, institutions and regulations at the European level, and also comparatively between jurisdictions. We will talk about the housing market is regulated and which other institutions concern housing in Europe. And we will discuss examples of potential housing stories that journalists may have missed – maybe because of all that normative and bureaucratic complexity. Interested in reporting about housing? Then this session is a must for you!

To each their own: Different local media models and their audiences
Local journalism and reporting on issues affecting people at the local level are key for the public to regain trust in the media. However, online news, the explosion of social media and the crisis of the advertising-based traditional news business model meant many local media outlets went bust.
Still, this new media environment also allowed for new kinds of local media to emerge. In this session, we'll be hearing from several such new local media in Europe about their different business models and relationships with their audiences.
Do you want to know more about local media co-ops and local media owned by their audiences? Is multi-city-based reporting the way to go forward? What's the potential of street papers for journalists to connect to their audience?

How journalism can have an impact in the networked society
Journalists go to a lot of trouble to make the world a better place. In analogue times we were confident that once knowledge was published, this would change the world. Do we have to revisit this belief in a more internationalised and networked era? And if so, what does this mean for the way investigative journalists work? How do we react to the demand to measure impact - be that in clicks on our articles or in directly measurable change in society? What about sharing knowledge and working with groups usually considered as sources - academia, civil society, activists and campaigning organisations, citizen groups - while maintaining editorial independence? Christopher Hird is a British journalist, filmmaker and former managing editor of the London Bureau of Investigative Journalism, on whose board he still serves. He has studied the mechanism by which investigative journalism has lead to actual change in society, and as a filmmaker brings a fresh view on collaborations with various partners in the public interest.

This is how you can research radicalization on YouTube
YouTube is one of the most important social media for young people in the US and in Europe. Due to the lax moderation policy of the video behemoth, there is a lot of extremist content and disinformation on the platform. Also the technical infrastructure, especially the recommendation algorithm, favors extremist content and pulls viewers into a rabbit hole of right wing extremism, conspiracy theories and fake news. This session shows methods and results from a 7 months investigation into this rabbithole and show how you can find radicalized users. Dutch De Correspondent has developed a python library with which you can emulate our research in your own country, or use it to explore other topics, niches and communities on YouTube. As a bonus, iyou will be guided through the weird community of right wing extremist YouTube stars and alt-right vernacular and memes that will help you to understand the rise of extremists all over the world.

Journalism with a cause - about journalism versus advocacy
Data journalism outlet Civio in Spain does not lobby on every issue it reports on. But if its reporting shows that the government is standing in the way of transparency or accountability, it’s not afraid to follow up on a story and take an advocacy role. Taxwatch in the UK is a think tank on tax avoidance and fraud run by an investigative journalist. Oliver Moldenhauer founded the EU-wide online campaigning organisation WeMove.EU and co-founded Attac in Germany. Can the experience from campaigning be useful for journalists? And do we have different views on the limits of journalism and advocacy in different parts of Europe?

“Book unique homes and experiences”. How Airbnb distorts rental markets
Many of us like indeed to "book unique homes and experiences", as Airbnb's tag line says, and there's no denying that Airbnb has made life easier and cheaper for many travellers and for those willing to rent out their spare room. Yet, it has also created incentives for landlords to only rent out their property to tourists – and sometimes without having the needed licence or paying the required taxes. Airbnb also creates incentives for big landlords (investment funds, other companies, wealthy individuals...) to amass apartments to serve the tourist market. All that is limiting the housing options for residents and distorting rental markets across many European cities, where people are suffering the effects of 'airification' and 'touristification. In this session, we will hear from journalists who've been reporting on the impact of Airbnb in cities Greece and Portugal.

It is the largest ongoing tax fraud in Europe: criminal gangs are stealing €50 billion every year from EU members states, according to the EU Commission.The losses are made worse by a lack of cooperation between EU members. Fraudsters are now eyeing the market for green power certificates. Islamist networks have used the fraud to finance terror. the German non-profit newsroom CORRECTIV has followed in the footsteps of one fraudster who played a major role in a high profile VAT fraud carousel. The investigation reveals how this type of organized crime works and how governments in Europe struggle to combat it.

FACTA: taking science into journalism - a collaborative approach to more transparent journalism
Facta is a newly founded nonprofit center that applies the scientific method to fact and data-driven journalism, innovating both the process and the final output. The methodology is based on five steps from the definition of clear hypotheses to research for data and publications from various sources, on-field interviews, assessment and feedback by scientists and other selected stakeholders up to the final publication. Each Facta story will published with the complete package of data, relevant documents and full interviews. All data are reusable, the entire process will be replicable. Facta focuses on the Mediterranean region where significant environmental, social and political problems have become real emergencies, media tend to be controlled by politics and there is a very scarce culture regarding digital innovation and transparency. Facta can help restoring trust in media involving stakeholders in different steps and not considering them only as final readers. Our project won’t develop a new set of tools or a platform but it will test and select the technologies appropriate to the process. We are currently working on few pilot cases, including the further steps development of a long term data investigative project on the agricultural market and the solutions small farmers are experimenting to maintain control of their seeds (sequel of seedversity.org and especially seedcontrol.eu), a project that has seen the involvement of farmers networks, agronomists and activists.

Can't get a loan at your bank even though you always paid your bills but because an algorithm says, you're not credible? Your family profiled in detail on parameters like mental health issues, phases of unemployment or a forgotten agreement at the school dentist? Systems for automated decision-making (ADM) are already widely used around Europe. But how algorithms are used and controlled differs widely. The recently launched report “Automating Society – Taking Stock of Automated Decision-Making in the EU” by AlgorithmWatch and Bertelsmann Stiftung assesses a wide variety of uses, pointing to regulatory gaps and suggesting better European coordination on the issue.

All under one roof? Should journalists work with other groups?
It's one of those questions in which it seems we just can't agree: should journalists work along with academic researchers? And what about advocates? And activists? We all produce content in different 'languages' and aimed at different audiences (or do we?), and we also work in different time cycles. Plus journalists are supposed to be independent and impartial, as supposedly should be academic researchers, right? But then, and thinking of housing, there's for instance a lot of interesting and highly relevant academic research being done in Europe that goes unnoticed by most media and then by the general public, and that could have helped to increase the issue's visibility and put more pressure on decision-makers to address it. Or maybe that's not the role of academic research? Advocacy organisations produce a lot of interesting research that goes unnoticed by mainstream audiences. Maybe they could partner up with media outlets across Europe – or maybe actually that's not a good idea. Then, the same data sets can be used in different ways by journalists, scholars, advocates and other researchers; so it might be worth it to join forces at the data-gathering stage. Or maybe not? In this session, we will have a conversation about those issues and will explore the different pros and cons.

Football Leaks - the story that keeps on giving
Three years after Football Leaks started, this EIC.network project is still producing new stories based on new data and is shaping a new European network of journalists. The latest published stories have brought new angles on the football business, exposing the business of minors, the immense power of big clubs as well as those who should keep it a fair sport. This panel would describe the complicated mechanics involved in researching, publishing and resisting spins and legal attacks after publication in the context of a network investigation.

Build a community to support your journalism - how to start
A community of readers who pay for the journalism they really want - an ideal funding model. While some new media hit the right moment with the right model and just take off, it is also possible to build a community from scratch, slowly but steadily. Oliver Moldenhauer has extensive experience in the field, amongst other things he was the founding director of the campaigning website WeMove.EU.

Uncovering the Bankruptcy Repeaters
Who files for bankryptcy over and over again? Who are the business people earning money from repeated bankruptcies, while ordinary people and the government lose money? Who are the people in quarantine from running any business, who do it anyway? Journalism about bankruptcies is often fragmented and covers individual cases. Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet’s investigative team developed new methods to map individuals’ abuse of the bankruptcy institution using big data and data drive analysis. Analyzing a spreadsheet of 163 000 rows and 33 columns, through queries and FOIA, they documented how business people circumvent the quarantines, and how the state is cheated for billions. Come and learn how you can do the same documentation in your country.

Housing reporters and researchers of Europe, unite!
Let’s follow this conference by creating a European Housing Reporting Hub! There are many people doing a lot of work on housing, from journalists and academic researchers to advocates and activists. As they work within different frames, in different fields and languages and with different outcomes in mind, possibilities for all those resources and work to have greater visibiliy and impact may be missed. After discussing those issues for two days, let’s brainstorm ways about how to set up a Europoean Housing Reporting Hub to easily access information, data, visualisations, contacts and other resources about housing; and to encourage collaborations across borders and maybe also across disciplines.

We are in this together: Making your local audience give you a hand
Sometimes, the data is out there, somewhere. Sometimes it is not. In such occasions, wouldn't it be great if you could ask thousands of people from your audience (and outside of it) for information regarding a story for which you need individual data points? There are quite a few free and open source platforms and tools that can help when it comes to crowdsourcing data and information. In this session, we will hear about some of those platforms and tools: CrowdNewsroom (developed by German investigative non-profit Correctiv), Taskforce (developed by the Journalism++ network) and OpenSchufa (developed by Berlin-based research and advocacy organisation AlgorithmWatch). Come and learn how to conduct your own crowdsourced investigation!

Unbias the News
We all have our cultural and national bias and blind spots – and are not aware of them. We carry them into cross-border collaborations and into our stories – and run the risk of reproducing the same prejudice over and over again. How can we find a constructive approach to embracing such bias in crossborder collaboration and help each other to 'unbias' our journalism by shedding light on each others' blind spots in the editorial discussion? The panel of speakers are journalists from different backgrounds and have seen first-hand how bias, discrimination and cultural misunderstandings can affect journalism, and some of them have addressed it within larger cross-border collaborative teams. Several of them have contributed to the book 'Unbias the news' to be published by Hostwriter at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in September 2019.

How we disclosed the biggest tax robbery in European history
In October 2018, 39 journalists from 19 media in 12 countries published the CumEx Files and unveiled the biggest tax robbery in European history. Bankers, brokers and rich investors robbed over the years 55 billion euros from the treasuries of EU countries. Oliver Schröm, editor-in-chief of the the German non-profit newsroom CORRECTIV, was one of the initiators and head of European research cooperation. He describes how this team of investigative journalists researched, how they evaluated 180,000 documents, how they got an insider to make a confession in front of their TV camera. Schröm shows how he and his colleague Christian Salewski slipped into the role of billionaires and proved with the help of an offshore company in a spectacular undercover mission that these cheaters are plundering public treasuries not just in Europe but around the world.

Structured Internet Research
From a researchers point of view, "there's no such thing as internet". Most people, even journalists, think by using Google they are searching the internet. That's wrong. Google (and the other search engines) only provide a partial copy of a very small part of the world wide web. The deep web, the social networks, the darknet are not covered by search engines. Researching these huge areas of information needs totally different methods und tools. How to find databases? Which kinds of tools can we use to research social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other? Wide parts of the social web can't be found in search engines. And, of course, same with the "Darknet". The more you know about the structure of the internet, the more effective your searches will be.

Know your audience: how local media engage with their public
These days, thanks to digital technologies and social media there are many more ways to communicate and engage with our audiences than for instance just a decade ago. And of course journalists may also still meet physically with their audiences, for which local media are specially well suited. And not only for that, as by virtue of being local those media have in all respects a much closer relationship with their public. In this session, we will hear about how different local and regional media are now engaging with their audiences: from asking your readers what topics to investigate, to collaborating with your audience to crowdsource local data, to running a media school for members of the public (who then may become contributors to your media outlet), to organising events and workshops.
