Eight news media projects gain €12m EU support

Today, the Commission has announced the results of the third call for Journalism Partnerships, with eight consortia of news organisations receiving a total of nearly €12 million to support the resilience of the news media sector.

Following a call for proposals under the Creative Europe programme, the partnerships were selected out of 74 proposals, and will roll out their activities for the next two years.

This call aims to support two sets of projects: collaborations between media to stimulate innovation in business and editorial models; and projects that offer funding schemes to support media of particular relevance to democracy and civic participation, to enhance pluralism. The winners span across 17 EU countries and three other European countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Ukraine). 

Full list and description of each partnership

The yearly calls for proposals for Journalism Partnerships have been attracting increasing interest among the news media community. The first call in 2021 resulted in 7 projects selected from 32 proposals, while the second received double the amount of proposals and resulted in 12 winning projects. The fourth call is currently under evaluation.
