Applications are open for the 5th edition of the Journalist-in-Residence Programme of the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) in Antwerp, Belgium. ITM’s Journalist-in-Residence 2018 gets the opportunity to deepen his/her understanding of topical issues in tropical medicine and global health during a two-week stay in Antwerp.
Since 2014, the Institute of Tropical Medicine yearly invites a journalist from Africa, Asia or Latin America for a residency of several weeks. While in Antwerp, they deepen their understanding of tropical medicine and global health issues.
Through fundamental and applied research, advanced education and expert services, ITM advances medical science to solve tropical, poverty-related and global health threats. The Journalist-in-Residence programme offers a unique opportunity for reporters, producers, and editors to work on an exciting project in the realm of tropical medicine and global health (a documentary, or a series of articles, for instance).
The selected journalist will interact with world experts in a wide range of topics in biomedical sciences, clinical sciences and public health. As ITM journalist-in-residence, s/he will have time to explore different areas or delve deeply into a single topic. There is also plenty of opportunity to participate in a variety of scientific meetings, seminars and other learning experiences, as well as enjoy quiet time for reading and independent study.
- Open to Journalists, reporters, producers and editors from Africa, Asia or Latin America
