How do we assess scientific quality?

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and The Young Academy of Sweden invite you to a thorough discussion on how breakthrough science may be identified and supported in a rapidly changing scientific landscape. Welcome!

Date

23 May 2019

Time

9.30–17.00

Location

Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien, Lilla Frescativägen 4A, Stockholm

Host

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and The Young Academy of Sweden.

The symposium is organised with support from The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW), The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) and The Swedish Research Council (VR)

Registration

The symposium is free of charge and open to the public but registration is required for all participants. The last day for registration is May 9.

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?

  • Chonnettia Jones, Wellcome Trust
  • Wilhem Krull, Volkswagen Foundation
  • Göran Sandberg, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation
