Injo talk @ Copenhagen Business School - Danish Injo Research Scholarship

Here is a press release by the Copenhagen Business School about my talk there. The purpose of the talk is to interest Danish researchers to apply to be a visiting researcher at the VINNOVA-Stanford Research Center of Innovation Journalism. The scholarship is funded by DASTI, the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, represented in the Silicon Valley by Lars Beer Nielsen. Lars and I are in touch about the scholarship. (Full press release available on the Copenhagen Business School website)

For journalism to survive, it must succeed with innovation. Journalism needs to innovate to survive as a business. Citizens, students, workers, executives, all of us need to innovate in response to tectonic economic upheaval.

Dr Nordfors will present his research on Innovation journalism and introduce the opportunity for a scholarship at Stanford.
Do you want to do research in Innovation Journalism at Stanford?

As part of a partnership agreement between the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (DASTI) and Stanford we invite PhD students and scientists employed by a Danish University or a Danish public research institution to submit applications for visiting scholarships at Center for Innovation Journalism at Stanford University. The visiting scholarship is for a total of four months for the fall of 2009 or the spring of 2010.
Executive Director at the Center for Innovation Journalism at Stanford University Dr. David Nordfors will be at Copenhagen Business School Thursday June 25th 2009 where he will explain about the visiting scholarship and the research program at Center for Innovation Journalism.

About David Nordfors:
David Nordfors is co-founder and Executive Director of the VINNOVA Stanford Research Center of Innovation Journalism at Stanford University. He is a Senior Research Scholar at Stanford University's H-Star Institute. He coined the concepts of Innovation Journalism (2003) and Attention Work (2006) and started the first innovation journalism initiatives, in Sweden (2003) and at Stanford (2005).

The details:
DASTI pays a slotting fee to Stanford, which covers the various administrative costs associated with the visit at Stanford by the visiting scholar from Denmark. In addition to the Visiting Scholarship, a Visiting Scholar has the possibility of receiving a prepaid travel grant of 10.000 DKK from DASTI. Visiting Scholars will accordingly have to fund their own lodging and living expenses and assume responsibility for their own salaries, benefits, and health insurance.
