Organised by:  MTA
Venue: Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Abstract:  2019 is the 100th anniversary year of the death of Roland Eötvös (in Hungarian Eötvös Loránd, 1848-1919), a pioneer of high precision gravitational physics, founding father of applied geophysics and innovator of higher education. His results are still with us, both in capillarity (before 1880) and in various fields of gravity. The Eötvös rule, Eötvös constant, Eötvös number (all related to surface tension of liquids), as well as several gravity terms: the Eötvös torsion balance,… (more)

Abstract:  In the twenty years since the “Declaration on Science and the Use of Scientific Knowledge” defined the new responsibilities of science as “science for peace, science for development and science in and for society”, we research funders have striven to keep these concepts central to our endeavors in science, technology and innovation (STI). Yet despite all our individual good intentions, can we say we are dealing with the problems that need most attention? As individual funders we continue… (more)

Thematic Sessions III. a. Science engagement: redefining the uneasy relations with politics and policy? Some transatlantic dimensions

Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Library Conference Hall

Day 3

Friday / 22 NOV

11:30 - 13:00

Thematic session:
Organised by:  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)

Day 3

Friday / 22 NOV

11:30 - 13:00

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)
