New training programme: Developing Knowledge-Based European Journalism

The College of Europe Natolin (Warsaw) Campus is proud to announce about a new, free-of-charge training programme that looks at fact-based journalism and European information policy. It has been developed under the new EU-funded initiative: Developing knowledge-based European journalism relating to Europe’s neighbours, through educational activities delivered by the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe (in short, the JCN project). Its main aim is to improve knowledge-based journalism and skills among journalists, media professionals, NGOs, and other influencers.

You can find more information about the project here, and register for the JCN courses at

The JCN e-learning programme includes obligatory courses (at least one of which you must complete in order to be considered for the in-person workshops and field studies) and optional courses.

The obligatory courses include:

1) Disinformation and fake news;
2) Open data and investigative journalism;
3) Multimedia journalism;
4) Value-based and conflict-sensitive reporting; 
5) Monetisation, EU funding and financial sustainability.

We strongly encourage you to study each lesson in depth, as the top e-learning performers (50 each from the EU and the 2 Neighbourhoods) will have the chance to be invited to our unique in-person workshops at the Natolin Campus and field trainings in the EU and ENP countries in August 2019. Those workshops and field trainings will be free-of-charge for all eligible participants, covered by the project EU grant.

Three of the five obligatory courses are now available on-line, and we will add new courses shortly. You can also score additional points by completing the optional courses on various EU policies and skills. We hope you enjoy the courses and find them useful. Make sure to start them quickly and rise up within the rankings!
