In the framework of a call for proposals on media freedom and pluralism, the European Commission selected four projects in 2013. Their activities started in early 2014 for a duration of one year. “Strengthening Journalism in Europe: Tools, Networking, Training” was one of the four selected projects. It was carried out by the Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom (CMPF) within the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) at the European University Institute in Florence and the Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) at Central European University in Budapest.

 The following activities were undertaken:
  • Creation of an e-Learning platform that offers practical modules that journalists can use in their day-to-day work in the following areas: investigative reporting; ethics and security for journalists; and defamation.
