The elephant in the room

The disconnect between our science-dependent society and the science on which it is built should raise major concerns.

Transformative scientific innovations impacting the world are happening across a wide range of disciplines. The event will tackle the incertitude of humanity’s destiny as a species. Speakers will address the contradictions in subjects such as biotechnologies, AI and social media amongst others. With many elephants in many rooms across the world, we want to discuss and explore ways to understand, engage and find solutions.
