Supporting ambitious field investigations focused on understanding of the climate

The French Association of Science Journalists (AJSPI) and the BNP Paribas Foundation launched their first climate investigation grant for European science journalists. The climate investigation grant was created in 2018 with the aim of supporting ambitious field investigations focused on understanding the climate, adaptation to climate change, or on different mitigation strategies. It also aims to encourage transnational, collaborative and transmedia projects. It is exclusively reserved for professionals (print, radio, TV, web...), members of a national association of science journalists, based in Europe. There is no linguistic restriction on the language in which the winning projects are subsequently published.

16 projects, 26 journalists and 14 European countries
For this first edition of the Climate Grant Investigation, 16 projects were submitted by 26 journalists from 14 different countries. The jury was very impressed with the quality of the grant proposals. It proved that science reporters from all across the East, West, North and South of Europe are finding intriguing and powerful stories to tell about climate change.

The winners were announced on July 8th, during the 5th European Conference of Science Journalists, in Toulouse (France):
