Calling all communication enthusiasts at EMEUNET!
EULAR is now casting for five (5) reporters for its next EULAR News production taking place onsite in Bella Center Copenhagen at the EULAR 2022 European Congress of Rheumatology, 1-4 June. The reporter application deadline is 29 April 2022.
The EULAR News is a production from the EULAR TV platform which will broadcast highlights and interviews from the EULAR Congress event, pre-recorded and broadcasted for dissemination online to congress-registered participants and to public audiences not attending the EULAR congress. The EULAR News reporter provides a report based on individually researched topics based on their specialization/interests from attended sessions at the congress and stories that the news editor will assign, as well assists in content edition.
By applying to the EULAR News reporter role, you commit to coordination work from May 16th, and recording on the week of the Congress (1-4 June) on various time slots for different segments between 08.00 and 17.30 (CEST). Pre-recording time slots will be assigned based on the segment format and reporter and/or interviewee availability. Selected reporters are required to arrive in Copenhagen on the morning of 31 May 2022 and attend an afternoon coordination meeting.
What is the purpose of this programme?
To give EMEUNET members the opportunity to learn about selection of interesting topics, presenting in front of a camera and providing personal accents and comments, while benefiting from attending this major event in the calendar of world rheumatology.
Travel bursary award to selected Reporters
Who can apply?
Interested EMEUNET members in applying and participating, who have:
- attended the EULAR congress at least twice over the last three years.
- presented at least one poster and/or oral presentation at the EULAR congress / another international congress over the last three years.
Experience in presenting rheumatology-related news in front of the camera / during an interview / during a “highlights-presentation” (nationally or internationally), is preferred but not required.
How is the application review performed?
A member from the EMEUNET Steering Committee (often the chair), the leader and a member from the education subgroup, and the EULAR TV project manager will score the applications based on the applicant’s:
- scientific and clinical background
- expertise in selecting highlights of a congress and presenting these
- publication list, and
- 1-minute video reporting on an abstract and/or topic of interest.
A total score will be generated by simply adding the single scores for each item from each scorer.
Please note age is not among the assessment criteria, however it is expected all participants will be under 40 years of age.
If a candidate has been a reporter twice in the past, they will be excluded from the selection process unless no other eligible applicants. If a candidate has been a reporter once in the past and scores are the same as another candidate who has not had a chance to be a reporter, preference may be given to the latter.
If one of the three scorers wishes to apply for becoming a reporter, an additional member (either from the steering committee or the education subgroup) will be sought instead to score the applications to avoid conflicts of interest.
After we have received all applications, we proceed with an internal review process.
How are the final candidates selected?
EMEUNET selects a group of top ten candidates then provides the final scoring to the committee including the chairs of the EULAR Scientific Committee, the EULAR Communication manager, the EULAR Congress Manager and the EMEUNET Chair who will eventually select the final candidates.
Depending on the quality in general, EMEUNET may provide a list of less than 10 candidates to participate in the project.
If you are interested, please apply. And if it doesn’t work out at the first application, it may with the next one! Have a look at the application form; it will be very little work for you.
To apply, please fill the application form and send it together with a 1-minute video (reporting on an abstract or topic of interest), CV and publication list to firstname.lastname@example.org
by 29 April 2022.
