The Science & Society Sessions are based on the observation that modern science has a growing impact on our lives, and that this is increasingly perceived so by the public. As a result, scientists are required to reflect more deeply on the consequences of their work and how to communicate their work to the public.
The Schering Stiftung therefore supports Science & Society Sessions that include sociological, philosophical, ethical or artistic perspectives into conference in the natural sciences or life sciences? Science & Society Sessions seek to inspire discussions that may help scientists gain a new perspective on their work and its public image and that may lead to novel interdisciplinary collaborations.Share this post
