SCOOP is a network for investigative journalists in Eastern Europe, Russia, Caucasus, Central Asia and West Africa. SCOOP was founded in 2003 and has since supported a large number of investigative stories.

How we work

The main idea is to develop a network between journalists in and between the different areas. We work on a peer-to-peer basis in direct contact between the journalists within the country and the SCOOP volunteers in Scandinavia.

SCOOP supports investigative journalists with working grants that enable them to cover the expenses of an investigation. Both individuals, groups and cross-border groups of journalists can apply for grants. Please find more details on the regional pages.

Numerous stories and investigations are transnational, and sharing experiences is a strong support for investigative journalists in their daily work. SCOOP brings together professional journalists to facilitate the sharing of best practices and production of investigative journalism. Several investigations funded by SCOOP have won national and international awards, among others in Ukraine, Macedonia, Russia and Romania.

Organisation and funding

SCOOP is founded and managed by the Danish Association of Investigative Journalism (FUJ) and is run by FUJ in cooperation with International Media Support, a Danish ngo. SCOOP is financially supported by the Danish and Swedish Foreign ministry and by private foundations such as the Open Society Institute.



SCOOP is a network and support structure for investigative journalists. SCOOP supports investigative journalism and provides national and international networks for media professionals who are conducting investigations. Since 2003 SCOOP has supported several hundred investigations and facilitated national and international contacts between journalists to investigate across borders and share experiences.
