Call for proposals | Cross-border Journalism Projects for Young Europeans

For the third year in a row, the European Commission will support the production of daily, thought-provoking and trustworthy content on current affairs from across Europe for and by young Europeans. The European Commission has launched a new call for proposals to support the production of news by and for digital natives to promote cross-border journalism projects for young Europeans. 

Call for Proposals: Cross-Border Journalism Projects for Young Europeans

This Call for Proposals implements the European Parliament Preparatory Action “A European public sphere: a new online media offer for young Europeans”. This year, the call has a significantly higher budget of €9million, providing an opportunity for larger projects of longer duration (approximately 18 months) with increased EU co-financing of up to 80%.

The call seeks to bring the EU closer to young people, encourage them to become active citizens and connect them across borders. In doing so, it also contributes to the European Year of Youth 2022. The objective of this action is to increase the availability of online information, in different languages, around European topics that affect young people across the EU, presented in engaging formats and through multiple viewpoints.

Projects should seek to generate engaging discussions and organise youth events. The grant agreements will include a charter of independence to make sure that grantees are editorially-free and operate without any political interference.

Additional Information

Projects should start around March/April 2023 for an indicative duration of 18 months.

The opening date is July 8th, while the closing date is October 24th 2022.

The call for proposals, application forms and all relevant documents are available here.
