EDITION #1; SCIENCE AT THE HEART OF PUBLIC DISCOURS

Should we as a university, as scientists, take a stand in public debates? Is it our responsibility to actively speak up, to share our perspectives? Should we actively participate and provide input to discussions on, for example, social media?

Femke Nijboer and David Fernandez Rivas experienced for themselves the highs and lows of being present, and talked about in the media. They will share their thoughts, and discuss the different aspects with Tom Veldkamp, Rector of the University of Twente. Hosts Miriam Iliohan and Robin Weijland lead and direct the conversation and make sure that your perspective will be used as valuable input.
