As an entirely new concept the 4th European Conference for Science Journalists (ECSJ2017) will set up its own journalistic outlet. It will bring stories about the conference, about science and about new ideas in science journalism and communication. A number of work grants are offered to participants at the conference. A work grant means that attendees can be commissioned to produce a story at the conference.
For each commission the grantee will be awarded 500€. Please note that you must be registered at the conference to apply for the grants. Some of the stories can be produced ahead of the conference and will be published during the event. Others will have to be produced onsite. The work grant content is made in cooporation with SciencePOD. Submission for work grants is now open. Be aware that the window for applying is short and ends by May 23.
Here you can find more information about the grants.
