Europe's big uncovered follow-the-money story
Public spending amounts for vast parts of our economy, large parts of the contracts can be traced through the EU’s and national tender portals, however the field is hardly covered journalistically yet. Adriana Homolova and her colleagues from The Investigative Desk (De Onderzoeksredactie) are focusing on the IT spending of Dutch authorities. She will show how to make and read spending networks with Open TED data for your own country. Another option is to follow the EU-tender legislations’ product codes, so-called CPVs, to look into EU structures applicable in all EU countries. Learn about the data structures and join the network of interested journalists.

Greece and Germany – The corruption portfolio
Kicking off a new cross-border project. Corruption is a financial and political problem in Greece. Since the beginning of the euro-crisis there has been a lot of criticism - especially from Germany. But in a strikingly high number of cases detected so far German companies are involved. Mapping of cases, industries, briberies and money flows - combining data journalism with an investigative approach.

With the input of data based on judicial files and criminal investigations in both countries, the project will address a series of queries with the ambition to challenge wide-spread perceptions:

What is the role of the banks? If they are the “circulatory system” of bribery schemes, where is this system physically located? Can it be mapped and visualized?
What have been the legal and the real world consequences for companies and individuals from both countries implicated in the bribery cases?
Bribery has routinely been treated as a purely financial transaction but what about the political factor?
Can we establish a correlation between Greece’s debt and deals involving bribery?
What about companies from other countries?
Programmers, Web-Developers or Journalists with ideas to expand the data with their own research welcome.
