As COVID-19 vaccines begin to reach people around the world, an SNF DIALOGUES event looks ahead to what comes next, after the pandemic, for science and society.
Will the story we tell about this time be a celebration of the victory of science, or one of doubt and negativity? Will our outlook on the future be optimistic or colored by pent-up anger over how events have unfolded? Are we in for a return to the pre-COVID era, or for a rethink of old habits and old policies?
Guided by your questions and comments too, renowned experts will discuss the critical question of what COVID-19 has taught us—and how this experience will determine the future of society, of science, and of the relationship between the two.
The discussion features Professor Emeritus of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School, Professeur honoraire of Genetic and Developmental Biology at Collège de France and President of Fondation Santé, Mr. Spyros Artavanis-Tsakonas, Professor of Philosophy and Bioethics, Director of the Joint Postgraduate Programme in Bioethics and Director of the Centre for Bioethics at the University of Crete, Ms. Stavroula Tsinorema, and the Director of the sector of Philosophy and Associate Professor of Contemporary Philosophy at the University of Athens, Department of Philosophy and History of Science, Mr. Anthony Haztimoysis.
The DIALOGUES are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou, iMEdD Managing Director, SNF DIALOGUES Executive Director and journalist.
