On June 24, 2021 the Aspen Institute Germany will host the Discussion “In Science we Trust – Public Perception of Science”. This virtual event will explore to what degree society trusts science today. The State of Science Index, developed annually by 3M, explores global attitudes towards science. It researches how individuals think and feel about the field and its impact on the world around us, by surveying more than 1000 people in each of the 17 participating countries. Dr Jayshree Seth, Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate at 3M will give us insights into the background and results of the index and perspective on path forward.
In the following discussion our knowledgeable panel will further explore the factors that determine the degree of trust people have in science. Has society lost trust in science over the past year? Or has trust in science increased? What are the reasons behind these trends? What measures can we take to rebuild trust that may have been lost?
We are happy to welcome Camila Cruz Durlacher, Vice President of EMEA R&D Operations, 3M, Aaron F. Mertz, PH.D. (tbc), Director of the Science and Society Program at the Aspen Institute, and Juri Schnöller, Founder and Managing Director at Cosmonauts & Kings, in our panel. The discussion will be moderated by Dr Stormy-Annika Mildner, Executive Director Aspen Institute Germany.
