A brief history
From 2015 to 2020, we awarded research grants up to 8,000€ per team for a story of their choice, to receive training and feedback from experts and become part of a pan-European network of cross-border practitioners.
The grant program is discontinued. The last round of applications was accepted in September 2019 and the final 8 research teams have completed their investigations in 2020.
In total the program supported 201 journalists of 72 research projects in 38 countries of Europe. Our fellows published more than 200 stories in many relevant national and international media outlets all over the world and won several journalism awards. To learn more about them, visit and follow the project accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
Result we are proud of
In order to make the lessons learned from our numerous and diverse research projects available to other practitioners and newcomers of cross-border journalism, a group of Reporters in the Field alumni have prepared a cross-border playbook. It is an interactive toolkit which gives you useful tips and tricks how to start and conduct your cross-broder research. How to develop your idea, what types of cross-border exist and why does cooperation matter? You will find the answers to these and many other questions in our playbook.
We thank the Robert Bosch Foundation for their generous support and the many years of great cooperation!
