CSF conducts workshop on innovative journalism
ISLAMABAD: The Competitiveness Support Fund organised a workshop on Friday on ‘Innovative Journalism’ as part of its capacity building initiatives related to the journalism fellowship programme at Stanford University in the US.
CSF’s fellowship programme has been in operation since 2006. Through this programme, CSF sponsors the participation of leading Pakistani journalists in the Innovation Fellowship Programme at Stanford University, California. Some 80 journalists from Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar were present at the workshop.
CSF Chief Executive Officer Arthur Bayhan sharing the objectives of CSF and its efforts in promoting innovation and competitiveness noted: “Journalism is one of the important components of the ‘triple helix’ which covers the government, private sector and academia to enhance the competitiveness of the economy and to have sustained economic growth.”
In a message to the journalists, David Nordfors, Pioneer of Innovation Journalism, Founder and Director of the Innovation Journalism Programme at Stanford University, said: “The fellowship programme is an excellent opportunity for journalists to broaden their horizons and learn about other areas of journalism instead of specializing in one particular area.”
He encouraged entrepreneurial and active journalists who long to learn to work hard and to be a potential candidate for the fellowship programme.
