Please join us for this panel discussion on the future of science journalism and its role in creating an open and participatory society, co-organised by SciCom 2017, Irish Science and Technology Journalism Association (ISTJA) and Association of British Science Writers (ABSW).
The discussion will focus on the role of science journalists in opening up science to the wider public: what works and why, what are the points of tension between science the media, and when do collaboration and dialogue break down and why? The panel discussion will be followed by informal networking amongst the journalists who cover science-related topics.
Entry is free to SciCom 2017 delegates, journalists and members of ISTJA or ABSW, but you need to register online: https://absw.wufoo.eu/forms/ppiwg6g18j4jfh
