Danish Science Journalists
The Danish Science Journalists’ Association (Danske Videnskabsjournalister) is a small and effective organisation that unites 150 journalists, editors and science communicators in Denmark. Founded in 1976, the association just celebrated its 40-years anniversary.
DV advocates for quality science journalism in both specialised and mainstream media and to improve the lines of communication from research institutions to the public. DV founded the European Conference for Science Journalists and organised the first conference in 2014 as a one-day event.
European Union for Science Journalists' EUSJA
Founded in 1971 in Belgium by seven national associations of science journalists, EUSJA now represents around 2600 science journalists from 23 national associations. Following the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989 there was an upsurge of interest from Eastern European countries that now play an active role in EUSJA’s activities.
EUSJA seeks to further science journalism as a bridge between science, scientists and the general public. It promotes the role of science journalists as key players in civil society and democracy. The Union’s goals are to improve the quality of science reporting, promote standards and support science and technology journalists in Europe.
