Under the lead of Reporters without Borders (RsF), COPEAM is partner in the project “European Excellence Exchange in Journalism” (E3J), co-funded by the Creative Europe programme on journalism partnerships.
The project aims to promote sector-wide, cross-border collaboration between news media professionals in Europe, to stimulate sharing of best practices for collaborative business transformation, to encourage journalistic collaboration by developing standards, new business models, training programmes and other activities intended to uphold quality journalism.
The consortium - composed by RsF, COPEAM, Free Press Unlimited (FPU), the Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE) and its leading Austrian member COMMIT - will invest in existing or emerging regional networks, hubs and initiatives in this field to drive compliance with professional standards. Through the combination of proven and new tools, support to journalists will include traditional training formats, mentoring and fellowships, micro grants, dedicated collaborative spaces and online resources. Around three topical clusters, participants are expected to focus in particular on climate change, public health and migration.
The main COPEAM’s contribution to the overall action is the organization of 2 editions of a specialized training for journalists on how to effectively report about migration-related topics. The first one will be held in February 2023: after a preparatory e-learning component, a 3-day workshop will be held in Belgrade, open to 20 journalists from EU and candidate countries.
