We are excited to invite you to join the inaugural 360/ Investigathon Riga, hosted by Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, taking place on September 29 and 30 on the sidelines of the Riga Conference in the National Library of Latvia.

Following the success of the DFRLab’s summer 360/OS Open Source Summit, this Investigathon aims to bring together practitioners in the field to employ open source research skills in real time.

You will be one of 20 regional journalists conducting live research on issues topical to Baltic current affairs. In cooperation with fellow participants, you will apply digital forensic research methodologies under the guidance of Bellingcat Founder Eliot Higgins and DFRLab Senior Fellow Ben Nimmo. We hope that all participants will come out of the Investigation with refined open source research skills, as well as concrete research leads that you continue to collaborate on moving forward.

So, come join the network of #DigitalSherlocks at the heart of the global movement to expose falsehoods and fake news, document human rights abuses, report the actuality of global events in real-time, and build digital resilience worldwide. Please RSVP below.

As always, do not hesitate to get in touch with us for any questions that you might have. We look forward to seeing you in Riga!
