iMEdD is a non profit organization founded in 2018 with the exclusive donation of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Its mission is to support and promote the transparency, credibility and independence in journalism on the grounds of securing meritocracy and excellence in the field.
The creation of the Organisation was prompted by the global crisis in journalism and the growing lack of trust in journalists and the media.
Fundamental values like freedom of speech are being challenged on a daily basis through attempts to control and manipulate the media, the latter being also plagued by a lack of independence and sustainability at the expense of the quality and validity of the journalistic output.
It is vital that journalists regain the trust of the public, but to do so, they need to be supported in their efforts to provide accurate information that ultimately empowers society.
With this in mind, our goal at iMEdD is to develop a modern journalistic paradigm by building a strong community of media professionals, by encouraging collaborations and by coming up with ideas and innovative ventures inspired by the latest practices and assisted by advanced technology.
