Pre Dataharvest Hackathon: Public tender data / European election / Farmsubsidies
Focus this year: Public tenders in the EU – tracking EU tax payers’ money is spent. Data for covering the EP election. And of course Farmsubsidy data. Before the Dataharvest, we will spend a day digging deep into the EU’s data. In a hands-on event addressed at both coders and journalists, we’ll work in small teams to extract fresh data from EU institutions, make visualizations and find stories worth telling. In the run-up to the EU elections later in the month, we’ll work on two topic streams: During the Dataharvest+ Conference journalists and programmers will cooperate on developing stories.

Key note: Hot topics in the EU now and the coming months
The new European Ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly, will open the Dataharvest+ 2014 with her key note speech. Formerly a journalist herself, she’ll share her to-do list with us focusing on four hot subjects upcoming or already on the agenda in the EU. • Conflicts of interest/revolving doors in the EU institutions (especially in a year when many Commissioners and other high-ranking EU officials are looking for new jobs) • Frontex (the EU's problems at the borders)
• Medical trial data transparency (ongoing court case of two big pharma companies against the European Medicines Agency for being "too transparent", after following European Ombudsman recommendations to disclose clinical trial data and adverse reaction reports) • Access to documents

Security Zone (introduction to privacy / information security concepts & tools)
This workshop will give an overview of the range of threats from public and private organisations and the various measures to deal with them. What tools to use (and not use) under certain conditions and how to defeat state-level attacks against your communications on a shoestring budget. While many of the threats to electronic communications have been discussed for decades the revelations made by Edward Snowden last year have shown us the scope and scale of the intrusion on our basic rights as humans and journalists. As a journalist you need to be able to protect your sources, yourself and your story (in that order). This means securing both content and meta-data relating to any communications you have with them by electronic or other means. In the future the ability of a journalist to effectively do this will determine if sources come to them or not. Glen Greenwald was almost passed over for the scoop of a lifetime because he did not have encrypted email on his laptop at the time Snowden was trying to contact him. After the introduction to basic theory and some discussion we will get hands on and set up various tools to browse anonymously, chat and mail with encryption and prevent data-loss from theft/confiscation of laptops and storage media. This will include the TOR-browser, Truecrypt, GPG mailcrypto and other tools time permitting.

Unveiling fraud through research in three countries
“It is a classic story of international organized crime and money laundering through marketing funds of public companies,” claimed one of involved prosecutors of the case against Bosnian mobile telecom provider Eronet. But it took years to start an official investigation in Bosnia and Hercegovina. After the publication of articles in Bosnian weekly Slobodna Bosna and daily newspapers Dnevnik in Slovenia and Die Presse in Austria, prosecutors and judges in Sarajevo and Mostar finally agreed about the jurisdiction on the Eronet case. The investigation also started in Slovenia and Austria. Three journalists investigated the case in three countries and published three articles in leading newspapers and magazines about the Eronet case. http://www.hercegovina.info/vijesti/vijesti/bih/slobodna-bosna-slucaj-eronet, http://www.dnevnik.si/objektiv/vec-vsebin/v-pricakovanju-mednarodne-pomoci, http://diepresse.com/text/home/panorama/welt/1553490

Security Zone
This workshop will give an overview of the range of threats from public and private organisations and the various measures to deal with them. What tools to use (and not use) under certain conditions and how to defeat state-level attacks against your communications on a shoestring budget. While many of the threats to electronic communications have been discussed for decades the revelations made by Edward Snowden last year have shown us the scope and scale of the intrusion on our basic rights as humans and journalists. As a journalist you need to be able to protect your sources, yourself and your story (in that order). This means securing both content and meta-data relating to any communications you have with them by electronic or other means. In the future the ability of a journalist to effectively do this will determine if sources come to them or not. Glen Greenwald was almost passed over for the scoop of a lifetime because he did not have encrypted email on his laptop at the time Snowden was trying to contact him. After the introduction to basic theory and some discussion we will get hands on and set up various tools to browse anonymously, chat and mail with encryption and prevent data-loss from theft/confiscation of laptops and storage media. This will include the TOR-browser, Truecrypt, GPG mailcrypto and other tools time permitting.

To the bone
The horse meat scandal has been a wake up call for Europe. What about our meat? What about our other food? Is it still safe enough what we put in our mouth? Before horse gate knocked journalists, politicians and consumers awake, Marcel van Silfhout and Jörg Zipprick – both investigative and culinary journalists – were already moved by worrisome questions on the issue of Food Safety. Both have published books about food scandals in Germany and The Netherlands. They applied for support from Journalismfund.eu to dig deeper in a very special investigative mission they focused on since December last year. They hope to be ready with their breaking story at the Data Harvest. If not, they will give at least preview on their findings that will surely get much attention in Europe soon.

Mapping development money
Spain has moved from being the sixth global donor of development aid in 2009 to being in the fourteenth place in just four years. Its government has cut down more than other countries in crisis like Greece, Ireland or Portugal. This data-driven project investigates these drastic reductions by analyzing the more than 22.300 million euros that thousands of projects received from 2007 to 2012. A team of eight reporters followed the money to five countries in four continents to reveal the consequences these developing countries are suffering: Guatemala, Bolivia, Morocco, Vietnam and DR Congo. With more than 130 interviews with politicians, experts, economists and NGOs, this is a story of how Spain’s development policy is being “dismantled” and is now controlled by the Spanish Tax Ministry. An interactive application also makes available the raw data in a visual way so readers can learn about where and how every cent was spent in these six years. http://www.elconfidencial.com/tags/temas/radiografia-a-la-cooperacion-espanola-al-desarrollo-9781/ http://www.ayudaaldesarrollo.es/

This means securing both content and meta-data relating to any communications you have with them by electronic or other means. In the future the ability of a journalist to effectively do this will determine if sources come to them or not. Glen Greenwald was almost passed over for the scoop of a lifetime because he did not have encrypted email on his laptop at the time Snowden was trying to contact him. After the introduction to basic theory and some discussion we will get hands on and set up various tools to browse anonymously, chat and mail with encryption and prevent data-loss from theft/confiscation of laptops and storage media. This will include the TOR-browser, Truecrypt, GPG mailcrypto and other tools time permitting.

While some letters were released, one critical one was refused. We believe the letter, like ones sent to Spain and Italy, contains important information about what governments were told to do by the ECB during the financial crisis. The Ombudsman asked the ECB to release the letter in light of Ireland exiting the bailout, but they have still refused to do so.

No dataset is perfect and without any errors. Especially data from authorities always contains some errors. Before doing stories, we therefore need to check and clean the data. Perhaps the errors hide the best story, or they simply hide everything. Or they are the best story. Open Refine (former Google refine) is a tool to fast identify and clean data on a systematic way. It's easy to start with and have a lot of possibilities later on. It works perfect with spreadsheets. We will take the first step into this tool, so you will learn the basic methods in cleaning.

The power of Wobbing – Right to Information in India
Meet one of the most active Wobbers we’ve met in recent years, Shyamlal Yadav. Wobbing or Right To Information as it is called in India is a powerful tool to unveil corruption, misspending, spreading of arms, politicians’ wealth (and attempts to hide it from the public). He also has interesting experiences as it – uniquely – was possible to use the Indian RTI to access information from parties. http://epaper.indianexpress.com/c/2418708, http://epaper.indianexpress.com/c/2339542, http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/rahul-gifts-his-land-near-vadras-in-haryana-village-to-sister-priyanka/, http://epaper.indianexpress.com/c/1853022

Trafficking of women – a European cross border research
In a recent research Maik Baumgärtner and Lisa Bjurwald present a unique insight into the entire chain of human trafficking: from survivors who tell their haunting stories, to those who take advantage of them – and make millions in profit. In their cross border series published in Germany, Sweden and Belgium they follow victims and try to find out, why perpetrators so rarely are held accountable. Hear about the difficulties and advantages of cooperating across borders. http://www.journalismfund.eu/human-trafficking

Null CTRL/Zero CTRL
This year's winner of the European Press Prize, the Zero CTRL documentation from Norway: Probably for the first time, two journalists have physically tested the data security in an entire country. In the article series "Null CTRL" (“Zero CTRL”) Dagbladet shows very concrete and real examples of how ignorance and carelessness online affects individuals, businesses and critical infrastructure in Norway. The journalists have warned about 2500 Norwegian control systems connected to the Internet, with minimal or no security. The series combines tabloid story telling with technical investigative journalism.

Fight against multiresistant bacteria MRSA - help develop European coverage
Doctors are deeply concerned about the growing cases of multiresistant bacteria, where patients can not be cured. If this continues, we move towards a situation like before the invention of antibiotics, when pneumonia and other infections could not be cured. Journalists interested in working on MRSA can gather and look for partners.

Key wob cases and document search in Belgium
In the country of surrealist painter Magritte, there is not one, but more than a handful of FOI-regulations and instances controlling the use of it. Using examples, that sometimes led to actual news reports, we will look at where and how to file FOI-requests in Belgium and, when needed, how to appeal. Additionally we will look at some other public information sources, such as the official state Gazette and the federal business registry. These can be useful for detecting companies, associations, pressure groups and their managers/leaders. website: http://openbaarheidvanbestuur.wordpress.com (in Dutch)

Security Zone (1 on 1 practical lab - bring your own laptop)
Bring your own laptop, and we will help you install the right software for secure communication during the session!

Also, you will gain insight in what tools to use (and not use) under certain conditions and how to defeat state-level attacks against your communications on a shoestring budget. While many of the threats to electronic communications have been discussed for decades the revelations made by Edward Snowden last year have shown us the scope and scale of the intrusion on our basic rights as humans and journalists. As a journalist you need to be able to protect your sources, yourself and your story (in that order). This means securing both content and meta-data relating to any communications you have with them by electronic or other means. In the future the ability of a journalist to effectively do this will determine if sources come to them or not. Glen Greenwald was almost passed over for the scoop of a lifetime because he did not have encrypted email on his laptop at the time Snowden was trying to contact him. After the introduction to basic theory and some discussion we will get hands on and set up various tools to browse anonymously, chat and mail with encryption and prevent data-loss from theft/confiscation of laptops and storage media. This will include the TOR-browser, Truecrypt, GPG mailcrypto and other tools time permitting.
