EFSJ is a non-profit organisation that aims to promote independent, high-quality science journalism across Europe
What we do
We aim to support and stimulate journalists to critically examine, challenge and assess scientific information in a social, cultural, political, ethical and economic context; to develop and support new business models for independent science journalism; and to stimulate debate about the role of science journalism and science communication.
We will do this through a variety of activities, such as organising meetings and conferences, setting-up cross-border investigative reporting grants, and running awards.
EFSJ was founded in 2019 by national science journalism associations from France, the UK, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, and the Netherlands.
Our Board Members
For now, the EFSJ is funded by all member associations: 2 euro per member, which means: when an association has 200 members, they pay 400 euro per year.
The EFSJ is founded as an international non-profit organisation (an ‘INPO’) according to Belgian NPO law.
The registered address is: Duboisstraat 50, 2060 Antwerp.
