European news agencies in joint project

18 European news agencies launching joint operation in Brussels

18 European news agencies have joined forces and launched The European Newsroom (enr) in Brussels. The newsroom provides shared workspaces, technical infrastructure, training and events.  The initiators stress the importance of international media cooperation and common efforts to fight disinformation.

The Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform is included in the enr project and is able to use all aspects of the European Newsroom free of charge based on a Solidarity Partnership.

The reporting by the participating agencies will continue to run exclusively in their respective national wire services. Select content, such as brief excerpts from agency news reports, is published with a time delay on the European Newsroom website.

This also includes dossiers from the contributions of the participating agencies. Important subjects such as rising gas prices, the global food crisis or the consequences of climate change, are examined from different national perspectives.

“In Brussels, regulations are initiated that directly affect many millions of people. Not only in the EU member states, but also in the candidate countries”, Peter Kropsch, CEO of German news agency dpa, said when inaugurating the newsroom.

”It is therefore essential to secure and expand independent and reliable reporting from Brussels and to provide information that can counter disinformation among EU citizens. That is what the European Newsroom is all about.”
