The Future of Science public lecture: Science shaped the world as we know it and will continue to influence our lives in yet unknown ways. The way science is conducted and the likelihood of discoveries to be made are not just in the hands of scientists, but also controlled by the way science funding and science quality assessments are organized. Is the future of science bright? Or shaded by budget cuts, triggering fraudulent practices and leaving little room for young scientists?
In this lecture the president of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), Prof. dr. Hans Clevers, will present the conditions needed by universities to deliver excellent science and education, how to fulfill science's role in society, and how we can make that happen together.
After the lecture we would also like to hear your views, come and join the debate!
