Abstract:  Currently, one emphasis for science is towards professional responsibility within the narrow constraints of the subject including extensive, often technical discussions, on “correct” measurement and reporting standards. These “internal”, self-reflexive responsibilities are only one aspect. Scientific research goes much further influencing society, informing policy or building the basis for technology that requires a careful cost/benefit analysis. For example, genetic screening can lead… (more)

11:30 - 13:00

Thematic session:
Organised by:  European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA), Pew Research Center
Venue: Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Library Conference Hall
Abstract:  This is a crucial time for reflecting on the role of science in politics and policy-making. In scientific communities throughout Europe and in the U.S. there is a palpable concern over the degree to which the public trusts scientific experts and authorities. Many view the public health threats emerging as a result of people’s concerns about vaccine safety and effectiveness as a sign of decreasing trust in scientific authority. Another case in point is the ‘climate change denial’, which… (more)

Thematic session:
Organised by:  Portia
Venue: Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Small Lecture Hall
Abstract:  Until very recently, the prevailing attitude to gender equality in science was that science should be ‘gender neutral’ to be good. That is, it should not matter if the researcher was a woman or a man, or the research  subject was female or male.  However, ‘gender neutral science’ is an illusion that hides extensive male gender bias in science knowledge and practice, because, historically, many studies have either not included females or have not reported results disaggregated by sex. … (more)
