La Conférence internationale sur le journalisme d’investigation est le plus important rassemblement de data journalistes et de journalistes d’investigation au monde. Depuis 2001, ces conférences ont réuni depuis plus de 7.000 professionnels provenant de toute la planète. Organisées une fois tous les deux ans, ces conférences jouent un rôle clé dans la rapide expansion au niveau international du journalisme d’investigation et du data journalisme. #GIJC19, qui aura lieu du 26 au 29 septembre à Hambourg en Allemagne, est la 11e conférence que nous organisons.  Un millier de journalistes provenant de 130 pays différents devraient y être présents. Des bourses sont prévues pour permettre aux journalistes vivant dans des pays en développement d’y assister.
