NanoDiode Workshop for Journalists

Nanotechnology is a rising topic for science journalists as the public is increasingly aware of ever new "nano" products entering the market. Are they dangerous? Are they safe? What is so interesting about "nano"? Science journalists need good facts and arguments in order to deliver balanced and guiding information for their audiences. Can scientists help to clarify things? What angles are important to cover in reporting nanotechnology? These are some of the questions which will be answered during 4-hours training workshop on 8th October 2015 for science journalists on "Benefits and Risks of Nanotechnology" – free of charge.

 

The workshop is organized by the European Union of Science Journalists' Associations – EUSJA, under NanoDiode project. The aim of the workshop is to bring science journalists closer to nano-researchers in the fields of science, technology and governance. Experts will introduce Science journalists to nanotechnologies in order to put them into the position to better fulfill their role as critical moderators between researchers and their media audience. Experts will show the science behind nanotechnology. They will explain what can be done with nano particles in products for medicine, electronics, materials, or consumer goods....
