Science and research are in full swing, with great strides being made. But excellent output alone does not create trust. Science as a guarantee of expertise and integrity is increasingly turning into one voice among many. This BMBWF and FWF session will address ways out of this crisis of trust and how to renew the relationship between science and society in the 21st century.
