The Infrastructures of the Future: Basic Science in Dynamic Regions - with Ursula Keller

Date Di, 17.10.2017 - Mi, 18.10.2017
Time
Speaker
Location Lund, Sweden
Program This symposium will be devoted to the future role of infrastructure in science. It includes talks by invited speakers and researchers from Lund University, and cover the below topics.

Science-Technology-Innovation
Science depends on relevant infrastructures. Simultaneously, infrastructures stake out the future boundaries of science and innovation. How can research infrastructures be created that foster excellent research while also promoting innovation?
Among the invited speakers:
- Chi-Chang Kao, Director of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory,
- Ursula Keller, Professor at ETH Zürich (Complexity, know-how and resources: How to stay competitive and innovative with research efforts that go beyond the possibilities of a single professorship)
- Matthias Uhlén, Professor at KTH

Research and Innovation for the Industry of the Future
Research and innovation do not end with the creation of ideas and know-how. We will discuss what is needed to create a flourishing ecosystem that fosters new companies, creates jobs, builds and attracts competence, and that integrates research, development and production.
Among the Invited speakers:
- Curtis R Carlson, former President and CEO of Stanford Research Institute International
- Dr. Heike Riel, IBM Fellow and Executive Director of IBM Research Frontiers Institute
- Magnus Ryde, Chairman of the Board of Sol Voltaics AB

Infrastructures in Society
High hopes are often bound to research infrastructure from a number of perspectives. But how do we know that they will function as planned? Can there be any guarantees that investments in research infrastructures are well spent?
Among the invited speakers:
- Helga Nowotny, former President of the European Research Council
- Dominique Pestre, Professor at Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) Paris
- Peter Tindemans, Secretary General of EuroScience
