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!
23 May 2019
Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien, Lilla Frescativägen 4A, Stockholm
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)
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?
