A series of programmes around science and society, in the Central Library in The Hague.
The nine programmes coming up in this season are made by Esma Linnemann. In each of the programmes scientists from various disciplines will discuss issues that are related to science and society: from medical issues to food-hypes, manipulation of the free will, and reliability of scientific research.
The audiences will be involved in the discussions. The guests are Dutch and foreign speakers from the scientific world, and from other disciplines like the arts, literature or journalism.
