Throughout 2018, Media Research Association and dokuz8NEWS have collaborated in offering data journalism training programs in Turkey, followed by publication of data journalism articles with support from the Dutch MATRA Program. The performance of this project has been evaluated by participants and is now ready for presenting to an expert audience in Germany’s Hamburg.

This year between September 26-29 in Germany’s Hamburg the 11th Global Investigative Journalism Conference is taking place, which is the largest international gathering of investigative reporters, organized biannually. 403 speakers in hundreds of sessions are going to present the best examples of investigative journalism throughout the 3 day conference in coming days. The conference is expected to attract over a thousand participants and will be located at two close-by venues at Der Spiegel Publishing House and HafenCity University.


While speakers present best examples and studies on investigative journalism from around the world, there will be 76 global organizations that will have open desks to inform participants concerning latest developments at their institutions and offer information on future activities.
