The first track of the Data and Science Journalists Lab in Portugal will start on July 13, with a 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.

The data journalists that will enroll in this first session will be Ana Figueiras (researcher at iNOVA Media Lab at NOVA FCSH), Rui Barros (journalist from Público) and Vera Novais (journalist from Observador). All the projects involved in the NEWSERA #CitSciComm Labs in Portugal were invited.

This event will be held in Portuguese.
