Stefan Treue joins discussion round on the limits to the freedom of research

The debate revolves around questions that are important for both researchers and society: Are there limits to the freedom of research? And if so, where are they and who determines them? Experts from the fields of biosafety, animal testing, environmental and climate research, bioweapons and chemical weapons will participate in this debate. From the perspective of their respective disciplines, they are asked to give examples of how far research may go in order to achieve research goals and where the limits (must) lie. The scientists will discuss these and other controversial issues of research freedom with interested members of the public. The even it organised by "Wissenschaft in Dialog" in cooperation with the Leopoldina. Friday, Juy 5 at 9 PM at the Leopoldina in Halle, Jägerberg 1.
