Conference on Space Science for Norwegian journalists


Norway has long traditions in the field of space physics, well illustrated by portraying Kristian Birkeland on the Norwegian 200 kroner bank note. The country's unique location within the auroral zone should suggest a boost for the scientific interest among people in Norway. Unfortunately, this is not reflected very well in the public domain. To improve the current situation, we suggest to arrange a seminar for journalists in public media (newspapers, magazines and television). Lectures will be given in an understandable way for non-physicist focusing on different aspects of Sun-Earth interaction. The conference will aim at creating a stronger relation between the scientific and communication community and initiate discussions about possible future arrangements to improve this relation.

More information about the conference can be found here (norwegian).
