iMEdD is a nonprofit organization founded in 2018 through the exclusive support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Its mission is to promote and reinforce transparency and credibility in the field of journalism and to build a strong community of independent media professionals in a welcoming space that promotes collaboration and the development of new ideas and ventures. To achieve this, iMEdD works with the Greek and international academic community, international peer organizations, and professionals from around the world.
