What are YOU going to see this Thursday?
Each day, the #ECSJ2017 media/social media team will ask delegates what their choices are for the next day at the European Conference for Science Journalists in Copenhagen.
Pedro Mendes, a Master’s student of Engineering Physics from Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal, gave us his top picks for Thursday’s programme.
“I’m looking forward to science journalism in a post-truth world” says Pedro. “Because Professor Pedersen will be there.” (David Budtz Pedersen is Professor and Co-Director of the Humanomics Research Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark.)
In the afternoon, Pedro will be on his way to the press tour to Niels Bohr Institute Niels Bohr Institute - explore the research (13-16: Niels Bohr Institute). He did note that he is going to miss a few sessions in the afternoon and he hopes that he can make it back in time for the Panel debate on Responsible journalism A new wave of censorship in science journalism (16-17:30: IT University - Auditorium 3)
“Most of the sessions are very interesting, but I’m going with the press tour to the Niels Bohr Institute as I study engineering physics.”, he noted “I hope I will make it to ‘A new wave of censorship in science journalism’, if the tour finishes a little bit earlier.”
In the end, Pedro adds “I’m here because I want to follow a career in science communication. The best way to do it is to get a background in physics first. Next year I’ll be finished with studying and I’ll see what I can do then. Hopefully I can come here to Copenhagen because I love the city, it’s so cool, I would love to live here.”
There is also one last event on Thursday, the Farewell Reception, Science & Cocktails Party at Christiania (18:30: The Grey Hall - Christiania). We hope everyone will be there!
