Romania Journalism Development Network (Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project)

A Turnkey Data Platform for Investigative Teams

Data defines 21st century journalism, and has been behind some of its greatest successes, but as journalists we need to change the way we work to unlock its full potential. OCCRP is committed to reinventing investigative journalism for the information age so that we can tell the big stories about corruption and organized crime. Those crimes can't be investigated effectively without new tools to follow illegal asset flows from autocracies to corrupt banks to offshore tax havens.

Editors will be able to ask questions that matter to hundreds of thousands of readers across news properties, and for the first time have the ability to receive detailed, statistically meaningful results in real-time. The project will break filter bubbles, change user engagement and data journalism for the better, tangibly cut newsroom costs, and build up a new way for newsrooms to monetize their audiences in a constructive, non-invasive way.
