First EUSJA and NUCLEUS workshop was held in Helsinki, Finland


The first Science Journalist Network workshop focusing on RRI and journalism was held in Helsinki, Finland on the 2nd of May 2016. Public engagement is a key to RRI. But is it the responsibility of science journalists?

The debate was lively and engaged and brought up many interesting issues. Those of you who were not in Helsinki as part of the NUCLEUS workshop can sit comfortably at home and watch the whole workshop which was being streamed lived and can be watched here.

If you still wonder what RRI has to do with science journalism, you can watch the video below where Gorm Palmgren and Berit Viuf explain a bit about the project.
