Innovation Journalism Fellows placed in U.S. newsrooms

Seven journalists from Finland and Sweden will spend the next six months interning in top U.S. newsrooms as this year's Innovation Journalism Fellows. They will cover stories related to business, politics, culture and research that focus on innovation in society. An eighth fellow, Turo Uskali, will work with Senior Research Scholar David Nordfors, founder of the fellowship program. The fellows, who meet regularly online to share their professional experiences in the United States, will present the results of their work at the Third Conference on Innovation Journalism, scheduled for April 5-7 in Tresidder Union. Vint Cerf, who often is described as one of the founding fathers of the Internet and who serves as Google's "chief Internet evangelist," will deliver a keynote address at 9:15 a.m. April 5. The conference is free and open to the public.
