In 2016, European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) started publishing in-depth stories focused on events critical to Europe. The network currently includes journalists, information-designers and technologists working together across more than a dozen European newsrooms on specific large-scale projects. Due to our many meetings and conversations, small groups of journalists in our network discuss ideas for cross-border stories and publish articles that enlist the talents of the reporters from our pool of professionals. Links to such stories are listed below.
