In terms of organizing our Conference in Lausanne, Olivier Dessibourg, the Conference Chair said: “It’s an honour for us to be hosting the 11th WCSJ in Lausanne. We’ve got off to a great start, and are well on the way to repaying the World Federation of Science Journalists’ confidence in awarding the conference to us – the programme is shaping up very nicely. In those difficult times for journalism as a whole, WCSJ2019 will be a great occasion to foster and defend quality independent science journalism all over the world.”
