Data journalists are vital for turning large datasets into valuable insights. The stories of data journalists particularly help society to improve processes of transparency and accountability based on data. Three Horizon 2020 projects - OpenBudgets.eu, Your Data Stories and DIGIWHIST - provide new solutions that equip data journalists with the right set of tools.
The OpenBudgets.eu toolbox offers journalists training materials, visualisations and deep analytical software to understand public budgets and government accounting.
The DIGIWHIST database for public procurement data sheds light on portals in 35 jurisdictions across all EU Member States for EU tender data.
Your Data Stories allows for finding, analysing and linking data, in order shape insightful and factual data stories.
