03/04/2022 11:24

Agencia Bori is a non-profit media-oriented initiative, founded by science journalists in February 2020. It supports journalistic coverage based on scientific evidence. Since the first cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Brazil, the initiative has worked to:

  • facilitate contacts with scientists across the country who are qualified and available to speak to journalists about scientific aspects of COVID-19;
  • give access to, and explain to be published scientific studies to journalists to enable the translation of research into editorial products targeted at the public;
  • offer courses and workshops for Brazilian journalists on how to report on COVID-19-related news; and organize media training for scientists and researchers.
