Forum to address science coverage issues

Science in the Newsroom Global Summit 2020

Global health emergencies look set to be a part of our lives. Scientists are warning that we may be entering a looming age of pandemics. What awaits us in 2021, and what lessons can we draw from Covid-19 coverage to better equip newsrooms and journalists to move from reactive storytelling to considered and impactful journalism?

The World Editors Forum is hosting the Science in the Newsroom Global Summit 2020 on 23 and 24 November to guide editors, journalists, and newsroom managers on how to cover future global crises. The World Editors Forum is a global community of editors and is an integral part of Wan-Ifra. It has created a platform for a free press, quality journalism, and newsroom transformation. The World Editors Forum has been in existence for over 25 years.

This two day, open, online event will tap expert views on future public health crises, showcase best practice journalism that has emerged in 2020, give ideas on how to elevate your coverage so that you are recognized as a credible provider of science news, and suggest how to develop specialist skills in your newsroom.

The speakers at the event include David Walmsley, editor-in-chief, The Globe and Mail, Canada; Prof Suzanne Franks, professor of journalism at City, University of London; John Burn-Murdoch, senior data visualization journalist, Financial Times, UK; Dr Roberta Villa, medical doctor, freelance health journalist and science writer; Shirish Kulkarni, award-winning journalist, among others.

The program is supported by Temasek Foundation. International Science Council and Quest are the program advisors for the event.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
