European Commission: EUinMyRegion Media Trips 2022
The #EUinMyRegion Media Trips is a study programme open for local and regional journalists from the European Union. The journalists completing the programme will have a better understanding of EU policies and in particular of Cohesion Policy and connect with fellow journalists from other EU countries and regions.
Europe in my region is a co-created communication initiative that aims to feature EU action for the Regions throughout Europe.
The #EUinMyRegion Media Trips is a study programme for journalists.
It will include an online training (3 hours) two days before the study trip.
The study trip to Brussels will last two days and include:
- sessions about EU institutions, structure and procedures; EU Cohesion Policy; how the EU handles fraud and mismanagement with funds;
- meetings with Commission country experts;
- data tools for journalists;
- project visits.
The first media study trip will take place on 02-03 February 2023, while two more trips will happen on 16-17 March and 27-28 April.
Around 40 journalists from all the EU Member States are expected to join each study trip.
The European Commission will cover travel and accommodation costs for the journalists participating in the programme.
The deadline for applications is 21 December, 17:00 CET.
