Transforming Science: Pathways Towards Sustainability and Trustworthiness

Nieuws - 23 mei 2022 - Webredactie

On the 11th and 12th of May the symposium ‘Transforming Science: Pathways Towards Sustainability and Trustworthiness’ took place in Brussels.

Science plays a fundamental role in helping us to cope with the complexity of today’s natural and social systems. A silver lining of the pandemic has been the demonstrated capacity of individuals, society at large, and the science community to adapt rapidly. Current and future crises and abrupt transitions will continue to require scientific institutions to transform research cultures, trust-building strategies, and science advice mechanisms. The consequences of this transformation can be seen as two-sided: from an inspiration to tackle complex global emergencies such as climate change or future pandemics, to a rise of societal expectations and demands towards research. Are we ready to transform science for the future?

Professor Tina Comes was one of speakers during the session 'Science-Policy Relations in Times of Complexity’. You can watch the recordings of this session here:
