The first track of the Data and Science Journalists Lab in Italy will start on July 8, with a three-hour workshop held online.

The workshop will see the participation of data and science journalists and citizen science practitioners. They will work together to explore how the data collected by citizen science projects can be transformed into media stories.

First, journalists will be guided to understand some of the basic characteristics and values of the citizen science projects involved. Then, the different projects will be analysed with regard to the 3 components of newsmaking: news, data and data visualizations.

This event will be held in Italian.
