The Finnish Association of Science Editors and Journalists organises visits to sites of interest to its members, as well as seminars and training sessions to promote their professional skills.
The association rewards the Science Journalist Award as well as grants to promote the professional competence of scientific editors and journalists.
Its tools for internal and external communications include a mailing list, website and the Tiedetoimittaja (Science Editor) magazine.
The ISSEI bi-annual conference "Language and the Scientific Imagination" will be organised in the summer of 2008 at the University of Helsinki.
The conference expects 400 participants and aims to create a new approach between humanities and science and technology.
The six-day conference will be divided into five sessions.
The first focuses on science, history and geography, whilst the other four sessions focus on social sciences, humanities and the arts, to name a few.
