International School of Science Journalism, 8th edition
The theme of the 2017 course is “Unveiling the Universe: when Science hits the News”.
We are living in exciting times for the study of the universe: thanks to recent breakthroughs as the first direct detection of gravitational waves, scientists are attaining a deeper understanding on its birth, evolution and probable fate, while achieving a better knowledge of our galactic home through the search of extraterrestrial planets and the ongoing quest for life beyond Earth.
However, these outstanding but complex discoveries can pose a tough communication challenge to communication professionals and scientists alike, who must look together for the most appropriate and engaging way to respond to the rising public interest.
The School will be held from July 1st to 6th, 2017.
