At <interact> 2018, you will have the chance to raise your doubts and discuss them with a distinguished panel of experts in various fields of science.
Which emerging fields will gain most interest in the coming years?
Which new scientific discoveries will soon be applied in real life?
Is free-access in science an option?
What is possible - what is not?
How will ethics deal with new techniques that might challenge human principles or morals?
In which direction will the academic world develop in the next few years?
How can we improve science reproducibility?
Can we ever reach gender balance?
Since <interact> is celebrating its 10th anniversary, we want the students and speakers to debate the “hot topics” that will influence scientific work today, change reality in the near future and might have far reaching consequences for the next 10 years. Come along and speak up!
