PARTNERSHIPS

 

It is our strategy to build partnerships with organisations inside and outside of journalism in Greece and abroad as the challenges of journalism today go far beyond the capacity of the traditional reporter. We have already begun several official collaborations with technologists, lawyers, cross-border journalism networks, organizations that promote transparency and accountability in order to tackle ad hoc issues that have to do with our development and our goals.
