As part of researcher capacity building, two BuGIS researchers, Dr. Jati Hatmoko and Dr. Ferry Hermawan attended Science Journalism Workshop held by British Councils and AJI (Aliansi Jurnalis Indonesia) at Institute Teknologi Surabaya (ITS) on 12-13 August 2017. BuGIS was selected as one of five research projects funded by Newton fund to join this workshop. This workshop was intended to encourage researchers to communicate their research to wider audience through popular media, so that they can have more impact to society and influence policy makers. For this purpose, the researchers were introduced to journalists from about 25 various medias who also participated in this workshop. At the final session of the workshop, Jati and Ferry had an opportunity to explain the BuGIS research to the journalists in separate five interview sessions.
