  • Future of Science News


    Event Description:

    This panel will explore the future of science news reporting and new models for news dissemination, e.g., Futurity, NSF's Science360 News Service.  We will examine whether science news that's created, posted and shared by academic institutions or the private sector -- news that bypasses the "editorial filter" -- crosses the line between news and PR. Or whether in an age when science reporting at mainstream news outlets has dissipated, this direct-to-reader model is necessary and spells the future for news syndication and consumption.
    Each of our esteemed panelists plays a pivotal role in the  conversation about how news is produced, distributed and consumed.
