Opening Symposium (January 18. and 19, 2018)

The jubilee year begins with an international scientific symposium on the topic ’Future of Research – Research of the Future’. As the focus is interdisciplinarity: FAU scientists from all disciplines, together with international colleagues, will look at the future of research.

The symposium consists of two parallel lecture streams: the first is devoted to science and its future in general. What challenges and what responsibilities does the future hold for science and research? What new methodologies and work methods will result from this? The second examines the future of each discipline to discuss relevant questions in a more specific way.

The two-day symposium will take place in the Faculty of Medicine’s new lecture halls.

On the evening of 18 January 2018, there will be a public lecture by Thomas Reiter at Audimax, to which all interested parties are welcome.

All interested students, scientists and researchers can participate in the symposium.

Already confirmed keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Harald zur Hausen, Nobel Prize for Medicine 2008, Prof. Dr. Brian Kobilka, Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2012, and Prof. Dr. Peter Strohschneider, President of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
