Are you in need of an expert to renew your organisation's organising and recruitment policy, or good practices ideas for serving freelance members, or an expert on collective bargaining, labour rights or authors' rights? Or help to address challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic? 


We will continue the EFJ Expert Exchange Visit programme (EEV) launched in 2018 to facilitate exchanges of good practices among the EFJ membership through tailor-made coaching.  In the past two years, we successfully facilitated the exchange among five pairs of our members and our members in Germany, Greece, Croatia, Romania, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Portugal. 

You can recruit an expert from the EFJ membership, whether they are experts in collective bargaining, legal aspect, recruitment, or labour rights, to visit your organisation for a training, workshop or simply to talk to your staff or board members to exchange good practices.

The aim of the EEV is to provide coaching specific to the need of a particular union or association within a particular national context. It will be a more effective mean for journalists' unions and associations to exchange best practices and improve their expertise and create an innovative multiplier effect through face-to-face training.


The EFJ will pay for the travel cost of one expert to visit your organisation and cover two-night accommodation.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, travel may be restricted. In this case, the EFJ can pay for the cost of the expert to carry out an online exchange/training. 

The EEV is funded under the project "Trust and quality in journalism" funded by the European Commission (DG Employment).
