Pascal Decroos Fund Programme (Belgium)

Pascal Decroos Fund Programme (Belgium)

The Journalismfund Europe is offering grants through the Pascal Decroos Fund Programme to science journalists to work on projects that have great newsworthiness and depth but that cannot be realised in regular media.

With this project Journalismfund Europe wants to stimulate in-depth science journalism in Dutch-language media in Belgium.

The projects should be original, innovative and time-consuming and must involve investigative reporting on science and its impact on society.

Funding Information

Grant amount: € 60,000
