Application Deadline-25th May 2018

The AJSPI, in partnership with the BNP Paribas Foundation, is launching its first climate investigation grant for European science journalists. The winner will be announced at the European Conference for Science Journalists on 8th July 2018, in Toulouse.

The purpose of this grant is to encourage ambitious field investigations focused on understanding climate, adaptation to climate change, and different mitigation strategies.

It is exclusively reserved for professionals (print, radio, TV, web…), members of a national association of science journalists, based in Europe. Projects must be submitted by their authors; no follow-up will be given to requests filed by an organisation. This is an investigative grant: projects already published cannot be awarded grants.

The jury, made up of journalists and scientists, will favour transnational and transmedia collaborative projects.

There is no restriction as to the language in which the winning projects are subsequently published. A letter of support from a media organisation is strongly recommended.
