iMEdD is a non-profit organization in an effort to enhance transparency, credibility, and independence in journalism, founded in 2018 with the exclusive donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).  

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, and dedicated to quality journalism, we build a strong community of media professionals, actively encourage partnerships, and foster innovative ventures to reshape media practices. Our dedication extends to the creation and facilitation of original, impactful journalistic content through diverse initiatives such as our incubator program, co-productions, and the development of our own original stories.

Additionally, we organize events and workshops to train our community with the latest tools and practices, drawing insights from experts across various fields within journalism.
