More than 1300 journalists from 87 countries had flocked to Rio de Janeiro for the 8thGlobal Investigative Journalism Conference past weekend. This is the largest international gathering of investigative journalists.
The next conference is scheduled 2015 in Norway. EUSJA board, delegates and members should mark this in their calenders. This would be a perfect timing to report on the EUSJA Investigative Award and, hopefully, some convincing results science journalism.
