First public lecture "Science, Technology, Economy and Society - Contemporary World and its Heritages" by Dominique Pestre

7 mars 2012

- Lieu :
College of Humanities, EPFL Lausanne
Room ELA 2

Science and technology are a central development in today’s world – but some of their consequences are highly debated as their effects are not always beneficial. These debates are not launched by irrational activists and raise important questions that societies attempt to solve.

The four public lectures that Dominique Pestre - Professor at Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) Paris and invited Professor at the College of Humanities - will give in March 2012 will consider the variety of today’s sciences, scientific and economic changes that happened over the last decades, the way risks are evaluated and managed, the demands of civil society to be part of the solutions – and the way scientists and engineers could answer them.
