ALLEA symposium: Across Boundaries in Sciences, 5 May

26 April 2021

ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, organises the scientific symposium ‘Across Boundaries in Sciences’, organised on the occasion of the 2021 ALLEA General Assembly together with the Council of Finnish Academies on 5 May.

The online event is open to all upon registration and will consist of a full day of thought-provoking discussions on today’s science boundaries with leading academics, policymakers, and civil society.

The boundaries of science have been increasingly pushed and pulled during the Covid-19 pandemic, shaking our understanding of science not only within the scientific system, but in relation to politics and society in general. In this evolving scenario, the symposium will focus on reflecting upon key questions:

  • How can interdisciplinary research increase the impact of science in society?
  • Are the boundaries between science and politics changing?
  • Do we need to strengthen the boundaries of science to tackle science disinformation?

Among the highlights of this online event, there will be a keynote on Fostering Convergence Across Disciplines by Prof. Riitta Hari, Aalto University, a video address from European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth Mariya Gabriel, as well as a panel discussion focusing on science disinformation.
