01: Scientists in Society: Towards Interdisciplinary Capacity Building

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / World Café
english language

The traditional separation of faculties has led to a qualification gap of scientists and engineers as well as of humanists and social scientists, creating problems for their ability to deal with intricate science-in-society issues. The session will discuss innovative ideas for teaching, such as MA+ or PhD+.
