European Journalism Training Association (EJTA) was established in Brussels in 1990 and groups 60 Journalism centres, schools and universities from 24 countries across Europe. They work together to improve journalism education in Europe, enabling members to collaborate on exchanges and teaching and research projects, and meet regularly to exchange ideas and information. Membership of the EJTA is institutional and not individual. The Association is a non-profit organisation and legal body under Dutch Law. The most important aim of the Association is to stimulate European co-operation in journalism education and mid career training between non-profit training centres, and to develop a professional approach towards journalism training. The association organizes conferences and seminars to encourage discussion about the important questions of the journalistic profession and its training problems; stimulates long and medium term exchanges of students and lecturers; organises research at a European level on important issues in journalism training; represents its members and defends their interests in contacts with institutional partners, such as the European Commission, UNESCO, and associations of journalists and editors; and arranges common practical exercises and common international programmes and projects.
