(17 January 2022) – The European Commission has launched a €1 million call for proposals for higher education institutions teaching journalism.
The Commission seeks potential beneficiaries that will develop a curriculum and teaching materials for a course on the European Union and on EU Cohesion policy for journalism students, set up a deployment strategy, create a network of education institutions and implement the course.
Proposals can be submitted by universities and other educational institutions teaching journalism at undergraduate and graduate level. Applicants must be located in an EU Member State and be accredited under the legislation of that country. The Commission will cover 95% of the cost of the project.
The deadline for application is 21 April 2022, 13:00 CET. The Commission expects to communicate the results of the call in June 2022.
