“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2013
Call for Applications

To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is more than just a profession – it is an art.  Medical science journalism is no exception. Accordingly, launching a career as science journalist proves to be an arduous endeavor.

To help recognize emerging medical science journalists, Germany’s most read medical journal Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the World Health Summit (WHS) will grant the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award for the second time.

The top selected five young professionals will be invited to participate in the WHS 2013 and experience a unique international networking and learning opportunity. This provides a career head-start as the annual World Health Summit attracts some 1000 high-ranking participants from all health-related sectors – from Nobel Prize laureates to CEOs and future leaders. Additionally, each winner will receive 500 Euro to recompense travel expenses.

See the website of the World Health Summit for the detailed Terms of Application.
