Colombia launches science news agency
Noticyt will provide hundreds of journalists across Latin America with a scientific news service. And in the near future a listing of science events will be made available, as well as a database of Colombian scientists.
The agency will also undertake the role of raising awareness of scientific issues among journalists. For example, it is offering to train four undergraduate students under the supervision of Lisbeth Fog and Mara Brugés, respectively Noticyt's director and senior journalist.
The Noticyt project has been developed by the Colombian Association of Science Journalism, with support from Colciencias (the Colombian Institute for Developing Science and Technology) and the National Academy of Medicine.
