At ESOF 2012 the swimmers are under the spotlight

Many Italian science journalists were present at the ESOF meeting in Dublin, and among them the colleagues from Swim were certainly very active, not only in networking with scientists and colleagues from all over the world but also in discussing from the stage the present and the future of science journalism.

Particularly, in the panel entitled “Is Science Journalism dead or does it just smell funny?” the debate introduced by Irish journalist Brian Trench saw the participation of Swimmer Elisabetta Tola, who spoke about data journalism and among other projects presented the wonderful job by swimmer Amelia Beltramini on health data (La guida ai migliori ospedali d’Italia)  that were never available before for Italian citizens.

The vast programme can be consulted on the website of ESOF, where may speeches where broadcast live and are now available online.
