Event - Dataharvest, The European Investigative Journalism Conference
The EIJC & Dataharvest was first organised in 2011, when some 30 journalists gathered in Brussels to exchange best practices and story ideas. In 2012, the number of participants more than doubled to about 95, a number that increased even further to 150 in 2013, 194 in 2014 and 270 in 2015. The most recent edition, Dataharvest/EIJC 2016, saw some 320 people from 41 different countries attend. The venue is Thomas More Hogeschool in Mechelen, a city 20 minutes outside of Brussels and very easily accessible.
