DV bliver vært for ECSJ 2017!

Af Jens Degett, formand for bestyrelsen

DK bidSom vi håber at alle vores medlemmer er klar over, så har DV’s bestyrelse arbejdet benhårdt på at foreningen kan blive værter for European Conference for Science Journalists (ECSJ) til næste år. Og arbejdet har nu båret frugt!

Det går forrygende med at samle penge ind til ECSJ konferencen. Vi har allerede fået tilsagn om 1,8 million kr fra Novo Nordisk Fonden, Lundbeck Fonden og Carlsberg Fonden, og der er rigtigt mange, der allerede nu har vist stor interesse for konferencen. Her er nogen af de ”unikke selling points”:

  • Fantastisk arrangement med utrolig flot Mødested i DR-Koncertsalen og på IT-Universitetet
  • Aldrig-set-før medieplatform og inddragelse af deltagerne i produktion
  • Direkte kontakt og input til europæiske medier
  • Mulighed for at møde og lære af nogle af de bedste journalister i Europa
  • Billigste hoteller og hostels booket for konferencen
  • Reception på rådhuset for 250 konferencetalere og særlige gæster
  • Århundredes fest på Christiania med Science & Cocktails
  • Outreach program med deltagelse af alle danske gymnasier
  • Deltagere fra hele verden, særligt program for Afrika og Asien

Det er vigtigt, at vi har økonomisk styring med løbende cashflow kontrol og en velsmurt organisation, der kan sørge for at alle praktiske ting er i orden fra møder til rejseafregning og hotelbooking. Vi har fået tilbud fra ATV og fra en PCO om hvad det vil koste at stå for administration af økonomi og andre organisatoriske opgaver som tilmeldinger og hotelbookings etc. Vi regner med at acceptere det bedste bud snarest.

Falling Walls fellowship – gratis tilbud for DV-medlemmer

The Falling Walls Foundation invites EUSJA journalists to a 3 day study trip to Berlin (7-9 November). The trip will start on November 7 around noon with a Berlin Science Tour (including a visit to a research center and an event in the context of the Berlin Science Week). On 8 November, journalists will attend Falling Walls Venture and/or the Falling Walls Lab, on 9 November – the Falling Walls Conference. A full version of the programme (especially on 7 November) will be announced later.

EUSJA has 10 slots that include free tickets for the Falling Walls Conference, Lab and Venture, 3 night free accommodation (7-10 Nov) with breakfast, also lunch for 8 and 9 November. Important detail: journalists selected for the trip have to pay for the hotel where they will be accommodated before they arrive to Berlin (rooms reserved at special rate). They will receive the reimbursement upon arrival in Berlin. This is a bit unusual for an EUSJA trip, but we must follow the rules of this fellowship.

Additionally to these given 10 slots EUSJA may include a group of its members who do not need accommodation. Please indicate if there is no need of a hotel.

The applications should be sent to the national association by September 10. Please write name, association, media, e-mail, mobile, passport details (because of security control).

Additional information can be found in the attached flyer as well as online at http://www.falling-walls.com/fellowships/science-fellowship
