3rd European Conference of Science Journalists 2016

Saturday 23 July 10:00-18:00, Manchester Central

Background

The 1st European Conference of Science Journalists was held as a satellite event to ESOF 2014 in Denmark. The event, jointly organized by the Danish Science Journalists’ Association (DV) and the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), discussed new ways to improve the status of science in broadcast media, how to start your own science publication, the opportunities of investigative journalism, the ethical balance between science journalism and science communication and new initiatives for improvement of gender balance for science in the media.

The 2nd European Conference of Science Journalists, organized by the Hungarian Club of Science Journalists and EUSJA, was held in Budapest as part of the World Science Forum in 2015. The conference examined stakeholder-driven communication, the communication of infectious diseases, the reporting of climate change and the role of the journalist as an entrepreneur.

Programme

The 3rd ECSJ will have four key aims:

  • To discuss and debate contemporary issues in science journalism
  • To encourage and provide skills for newcomers
  • To promote professional development
  • To enable journalists to link with colleagues, encouraging journalistic entrepreneurship

The programme has now been announced and was developed by the ABSW and EUSJA in consultation with science journalism associations and science journalists throughout Europe. 

The ABSW and EUSJA look forward to welcoming you to Manchester to meet with colleagues old and new and discover the common themes and issues affecting science journalists today and into the future. 

Discounted registration rates will be available for individuals in membership of science journalism associations, and for student journalists.
