Norway to Fund BIRN Regional

Posted on

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry has generously provided BIRN with funding to support its regional programme aimed at consolidating and strengthening teams of investigative journalists across the Balkans during 2007 and 2008.

This significant grant will also help BIRN to develop other network activities to become income generating, with a view to achieving sustainability in the medium term.

The Norwegian foreign ministry supported the evolution and launch of BIRN through 2004 and 2005, and in 2006 supported our first year of regional activities as an independent local civil society initiative.
