Opening the Ivory Tower Wide

The two central university missions - research and teaching - have long been complemented by an aim for public outreach and the charge to spread knowledge and research results to the broader society. This symposium will discuss and exemplify how academic progress reaches society and makes a wider difference, but also challenges to this process, and consequences for academic freedom.

I. Path from Scientific Research to Impact and Industry
II. Freedom vs Impact? Role of Universities and Funders
III. Life Science Research for the Benefit of Patients and Society
IV. Science Communication and Policy Advice

The symposium is organized by the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (scas) and is an event of its Natural Sciences Programme (Measurable Human).

No registration is required.
