International School of Science Journalism, 11th edition
The theme of the 2020 edition of the school is “Physics for Human Health: Fundamental and Accelerators Science for Medicine“.
All candidates will be informed about the approval or rejection of their application by February 17th, 2020.
As scientific knowledge increases and the boundaries of science move forward, setting increasingly ambitious and complex goals, the development of big science projects – involving hundreds or thousands of scientists from different countries and institutions and the construction of huge facilities – is becoming more and more essential for the achievement of those goals.
However, no such project would be feasible without the support of an international public opinion fully aware of the importance of its purpose both from a scientific point of view and from that of the technological, economic and social implications.
Close collaboration between scientists and science communicators is therefore more relevant than ever to ensure that information on those issues is accurate, thorough and as broad as possible.
The School will be held from March 21st to 26th, 2020.
