2015 MacCormick European Lecture

Video details

The great societal challenges ahead of us, such as climate change and health, can only be tackled if we are able to combine all of our current knowledge and make this knowledge available in a qualitative and timely fashion. This is where modern Academies in Europe and around the globe can play an important role, to present civil society with options and alternatives based on current scientific knowledge and judgement. This is commonly known as scientific advice but it can be alternatively expressed as modern enlightenment.
