1. Since its inception, Journalismfund.eu's Dataharvest Conference has been working on bringing together two communities: investigative journalists and data specialists. The need for collaboration between these two worlds has only increased since the very first edition of the conference in 2011: this year's seventh edition was the most successful yet.
  2. As is tradition, the conference started with a pre-conference Hack Day on Thursday.
  3. On the same day, EIJC & Dataharvest organised its first ever Train the Trainers. The workshop brought together Helena Bengtsson, Jodi Upton, Brant Houston, Luuk Sengers, Nils Mulvad and Jonathan Stoneman who were very happy to share their knowledge and wisdom with the participants.
  4. On Friday morning the badges were ready, waiting to be picked up. Registration, coffee, welcome.
  5. Ready, set, go! Edouard Perrin, the French journalist who revealed LuxLeaks delivered the first keynote address.
  6. Of course lunch was served!
  7. After the keynote, the parallel sessions started. There were over 150 sessions during the length of the conference, spread over ten different tracks. There were tracks on algorithm accountability, data, wobbing, cross-border investigations, tax & finance, online research & security and more. Tough choice, but everyone found what they were looking for.
