Date: Thursday 23 May
Venue: The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
Hosts: The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and The Young Academy of Sweden
The seminar is free of charge and open to the public.
Registration is mandatory (remember to state any food allergy or dietary requirements).
The purpose of the symposium is to invite to a thorough discussion on how breakthrough science may be identified and supported in a rapidly changing scientific landscape. Can breakthrough science be predicted? Do we encourage bold science and are we able to identify worthy risks? Or do we favour productivity rather than creativity?
