DATA4CitSciNews – Data Journalism, Misinformation and Citizen Science Event
28 November 2022
09:30 - 14:00 CEST
Parc Científic de Barcelona (c/ Baldiri Reixac, núm.4-8 - Barcelona)
In partnership with fellow EU-funded project ENJOI, NEWSERA is launching DATA4CitSciNews, an event on the state of the art of data journalism, the challenge of misinformation, and citizen science!
In a time when scientific misinformation and fake news are increasingly becoming a challenge both for the public and for media professionals, EU-funded projects ENJOI and NEWSERA will host DATA4CitSciNews, a conference on how citizen science can contribute to data journalism and to fight misinformation. During the event, an impressive line-up of media and journalism experts will discuss meaningful case studies on the topics of data science journalism, journalism for the public interest and in a civic context, and the concept of citizen journalism applied to science coverage.
DATA4CitSciNews will be held at the Barcellona Scientific Park on 28th November 2022, at Auditorium Antoni Caparrós. For those who are not able to attend, the conferences will be livestreamed on the NEWSERA YouTube channel (no registration needed).

The exhibition aims to spark a discussion about how citizens and journalists and well designed data collection can be the drivers behind investigation to ultimately respond to societal needs and benefit communities.
