Hybrid event

Making up your science?

"Do good and talk about it" is an old saying. This also applies to science as a guarantor of facts and reason, and even more so in times of new social media. In the marketplace of opinions, however, science must also shout loud enough. If everyone can be sender and receiver, how can pseudoscience and fake news be prevented?
Are laboratories and universities just echo chambers of a different kind? How to deal with scandalization, staging, and personalization?

With:
Prof. Dr. Otmar Wiestler, physician, former director of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and President of the Helmholtz Association
Prof.Dr. Carsten Könneker, physicist, former professor for science communication at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and managing director of the Klaus Tschira Foundation
