The FRONTIERS team gathered, on June 21 and 22, in Barcelona, to officially launch the ERC-funded project, FRONTIERS (Fellowship Residencies Offering science News professionals Tools and training for Independent and Ethical Reporting on Science). During the kick-off meeting, the partners discussed the project’s goals and established a detailed agenda for the implementation of the project’s objectives.
FRONTIERS is expected to implement residencies for science journalists within research institutions across Europe. Besides the residency program itself, the project will also develop a set of ethics principles, best practices and guidelines for journalistic fellowships in research institutions.
In the coming months, the FRONTIERS consortium, which includes the NOVA University of Lisbon (Portugal), the Pompeu Fabra University (Spain), the Center for Ethics in Science and Journalism (Italy) and the SME Enspire Science (Israel), will work together to develop and implement the first calls to the residency programs.
