The Association Science Writers in Milan, in Italy (SWIM) – formally established in March 2010 – was created with the aim of becoming a reference for all professionals interested in promoting cooperation and debate within the professional community and with the scientific community – nationally and internationally – and in supporting multidisciplinary research on all aspects of science and science writing.
In the spring 2011, SWIM has become a member of both the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA) and the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ).
The association is currently composed mostly of science reporters, editors, popularizers and writers in general, but is open to all the professionals involved in the communication of science and about science with a critical approach, particularly through the use of all new media.
The board of SWIM – currently composed by science writers Daniela Ovadia, Silvia Bencivelli (Treasurer, who replaced Guido Romeo in December 2011) and Fabio Turone (President) – is eager to cooperate with all individuals and organizations sharing the same goals, in Italy and all over the world.
