News website gets £350k for Brexit probe

By John Mulgrew

A Northern Ireland investigative news website has been awarded £350,000 by Google to probe the impact of Brexit across the region.

The Detail is one of just a handful of media companies in the UK and Ireland to be given the funding from Google's €150m (£132m) Digital News Initiative Innovation fund, which aims to support innovation in digital news journalism.

The two-year project, called Brexit in detail: stories, data and analysis from the island of Ireland, will examine the impact and implications that the UK's exit from the EU will have on a range of areas, including industry, security and politics.
