Collaborative Journalism: Strategies to mitigate risk and frustration

Collaborative journalism sounds cool, but collaborating with others may turn out not to be as smooth or rewarding as you’d expect it.

In this webinar, Lorenzo Ferrari of OBC Transeuropa shares good practices, tips and checklists to help you make the most out of collaborative projects, including cross-border ones.

  • What are some of the aspects to consider when you enter a collaborative project?
  • What are some of the challenges that often arise?
  • How to prepare for, and manage the (un)expected?


Lorenzo Ferrari coordinates the European Data Journalism Network on behalf of OBC Transeuropa, which founded it in 2017. In this role, he works on collaborative, transnational and multilingual journalism on a daily basis. A historian by training, Lorenzo's own area of expertise is European integration.
