SCIENCE - ETHICS - POLITICS DAY

JUNE 18th 2021, A VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM

Welcome to this year's Science-Ethics-Politics Day

Join us for a day full of learning about and discussing Equality in Science in an online format.

This year’s Science-Ethics-Politics Day (SEPD) centers around the intriguing question “How equal is Science?”. It is important to address this topic, since we as scientists think of ourselves as a global community. From that point of view, a lot of questions arise, dealing with issues such as:

- Are the general parameters for scientists in different countries the same?
- What about the role of ethics and ethical standards in different cultures/countries?
- How equal is science in general and when looking at gender equality and the power of the citation space dominated by the citation elite?
- What are potential problems when engaging in intercultural communication and scientific communication?
- How did the COVID-19 pandemic impact on science as well society, politics and their relationship with science?
- What changes should we make for a better future?

We look at these questions with global overview and more case-specific talks and workshops.

We are pleased to provide the SEPD as a framework for (doctoral) researchers to learn from and discuss with the speakers and each other. Furthermore, specific hands-on knowledge will be communicated in workshops. The SEPD is organized by doctoral researchers of the International Max Planck Research School for Infectious Diseases and Immunity (IMPRS-IDI) based at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin and the Center of Infection Biology and Immunity (ZIBI). The lectures as well as the discussions are open for the public and the whole event is free of charge. You can register for a workshop by selecting your top three of them and ranking them according to your preferences during registration. The event will be held in English and via Zoom.

Organizing Committee: Dora Čerina, Florian Grüblinger, Lukas Heiberger, Vajiheh Jafari and Marie Burns.
