About the Seminar

Logo "Space Exploration, Industry 4.0, Gene-Editing: How to address the challenges of Europe’s Future?"

Do you ever wonder how the European Union and sciences are linked? Would you like to reflect on how the EU could face scientific and technological challenges? This event is for you!

In order to grasp the link between scientific and technological progress and european policy, participants will have deeper insight from experts on their respective fields through conferences and workshop. The idea is to show how new technologies and sciences have impacts on our daily lives and why should European Union start to think how to face ethical and social challenges that will emerge. This will be done through the making of scenarios created by participants themselves.

The first part of the seminar will take place in Strasbourg, the second part of the seminar will take place in Darmstadt.

In order to keep cost down and to be as efficient as possible (also for the environment), we are trying to co-ordinate shared rides where ever possible.
