Paris Accords of Science Communication 2019 for Journalists in the EU & USA (Fully Funded)

The Paris Accords of Science Communication offers journalists the opportunity to interact with scientific experts and learn better ways to communicate science to the public. This four-day training program will cover issues such as the neuroscience of hate, the science of pain, social determinants of health, childhood trauma, and its lifelong impact, and the plight of refugees and victims of human trafficking; and more. Journalists will also participate in field trips to scientific institutions.

The National Press Foundation is a 501(c)(3) whose primary mission is educating journalists on the complex issues of the day and training them on the latest digital tools. The foundation recognizes and encourages excellence in journalism through its awards and programs.

Since 1976, the foundation has provided in-person professional development opportunities to thousands of editors, producers, and reporters, helping them better understand and explain the impact of public policy on readers and viewers. Programs are held in the nation’s capital, around the United States and overseas. NPF brings journalists together with leading authorities to discuss significant issues ranging from health and economics to politics and policy.

  • The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs, and most meals. 
  • NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues.

Requirement:This program is for journalists based in the United States and the European Union only.
