Journalists' comments

Matteo Alviti - freelance - Italy :

"Two things are of the utmost importance for journalists: set foot in the place you're writing about and to know the right person in the right place. The seminars organised by the EJC are one of the best and most pleasant ways to fulfil these conditions. Furthermore, getting in touch with so many colleagues from other countries allows you to build a close net of relationships, the third most important thing..."

Sacha Kester - de Volkskrant - The Netherlands :

"The seminar in Brussels/Baku was very useful for me: it gives the opportunity to become more familiar with a certain subject (in my case transport and energy) and meet some of the most important players in this field. Furthermore, these players feel quite free to express themselves: sometimes on and sometimes off-the-record. This does not only leave you with more insight, but also with a network that has proven to be very useful."
