Bayer Foundation at Berlin Science Week 2021
5th - 8th November 2021
Bayer Foundation are really excited to be participating in person and online at this year’s Berlin Science Week hosted by Falling Walls. Come and meet the team and partners at our stand, or join our panel discussion on the relationship between science and society from our fantastic participants: Who Owns Science? Our Executive Director, Monika Lessl, is also a panelist alongside Tatjana König and Simone Menne on the topic of “Promoting Gender Equality for Innovation”.
Who Owns Science?
Together with our partner SciCo we are hosting four brilliant panelists to discuss:
Can the science of tomorrow be guided by today’s society?
Can science include us all? How can the role of society in scientific practice and constructive dialogue be enhanced? How important is equality in science? Is open data a blessing or a threat? How can we immunize citizens to fake news? Does citizen peer reviewing of scientific articles really help?
Co-Founder & General Manager of SciCo and a National Geographic Explorer
Our panel includes:
Sociologist, president of WZB Berlin Social Science Center and member of the G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council (GEAC).
Scientist and academic, Junior Research Group Leader at Leibniz-Institut for Catalysis.
