PSC Summer School 2018

10-14 September 2018, Einsiedeln, Switzerland

Social transformation through innovation and research are key elements in the discussion on how the global community could overcome its complex problems related to environmental and economic constraints in a resource-limited world. Innovation conflicts arise when transformation is mainly technological driven and not integrating ethical, legal and social issues. In response, scientists are asked to take a role in science-in-society dialogue. The Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center (PSC) invites students and postdocs to this year's PSC summer school “Responsible Research and Innovation in Plant Sciences”.
