The Google News Initiative

The Google News Initiative is a European organization created by Google to “support high-quality journalism through technology and innovation”. It encompasses an “Innovation Fund” worth €150m, which in 2018 issued grants to 461 projects at news organizations across Europe.

In a context where news is created, consumed, and paid for in dramatically shifting ways, the Google News Initiative is focused on elevating and strengthening the quality of journalism, evolving business models to drive sustainable growth and empowering news organizations through technological innovation.
