The Power of Science Based Investigative Collaborations

Collaborating with other journalists and newsrooms gives you investigative insight, reach and impact that you can’t get alone. When you ground that collaborative investigation in original physical or data science, you can deliver truly new information for your audience while also pushing forward the research on important issues. That’s what Orb Media does and its founder, award winning journalist Molly Bingham, will share the unique newsroom considerations of running science based investigative collaborations. This talk will outline how to make the most of your precious time and treasure while illustrating how working together with others on scientific projects can have a powerful impact.
