“Study trip” als Països Baixos

L’Associació Nerlandesa de Periodistes Científics (VWN) organitza una excursió internacional en nom de l’European Association of Science Journalists Association (EUSJA), que tindrà lloc del 28 de setembre al 2 d’octubre. Els temes de l’excursió seran les ciències de l’espai, l’astronomia i la física

Els membres de l’ACCC que hi estiguin interessats poden presentar la sol·licitud enviant-nos un correu amb les vostres dades personals i un breu CV. Envieu-ho a secretaria-tecnica@accc.cat o presidencia@accc.cat

Si el nombre de sol·licituds ultrapassa el de places disponibles, els organitzadors donaran prioritat els periodistes que tractin temes de l’espai, l’astronomia i la física.

Com és costum en aquests viatges, els participants hauran de pagar-se el transport fins a Amsterdam. L’allotjament, el transport per a les excursions i visites i els àpats durant les excursions aniran a càrrec dels organitzadors.

Teniu al final d’aquest escrit el programa definitiu.
