Terrorism. Looming brexit. The migrant crisis. Climate Change. The European Union faces myriad pressing challenges.

Now Agence France-Presse (AFP), Italian news agency ANSA and Germany’s Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) have teamed up to create the European Data News Hub (EDNH) website offering reliable, multimedia content on hot button issues.

Now Agence France-Presse (AFP), Italian news agency ANSA and Germany’s Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) have teamed up to create the European Data News Hub (EDNH) website offering reliable, multimedia content on hot button issues.

The site is now online at www.ednh.news. Media can download text stories in five languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Italian) plus infographics, videos and photos, with content based on facts and figures, investigations and statistical research.

The EDNH is an interactive platform and we encourage feedback from the public via the site and on social media in a bid to inform and stimulate debate on the issues that people across Europe are talking about.

Datenfreunde GmbH (OpenDataCity) runs the website and will provide data on trending news and topics and media are invited to upload their tools onto their own websites.

The project, which receives a subsidy from the European Commission, has complete editorial independence as spelled out in its editorial charter. 

The EDNH content is distributed by the three agencies to their clients, which include newspapers, TV networks, radio stations, internet and online sites, databases and governmental and international bodies. 

In the future, specialists in data journalism and other European news agencies will be invited to contribute to the EDNH.
