Growing up in Science Zurich, 20. November 2018
In this new seminar series organized by PhD students from the Life Science graduate school, famous scientists are invited to talk about failures, detours, difficulties, and challenges they have encountered during their career. These topics are rarely discussed in academia, but it is very important for young researchers to understand that difficulties are part of any career. The second event will take place on 20th of November at Irchel, Theatersaal at 11.30 with with Prof. Meera V. Sundaram from University of Pennsylvania.


Genesis 2.0 - Film screening and Panel Disussion

Tuesday, November 27, 2018 | 20:00 - 23:00
Cinema Arthouse Alba, Zähringerstrasse 44, Zürich

Genesis 2.0, by award-winning Swiss director Christian Frei, follows the story of mammoth tusk hunters in the remote islands of Siberia. It further goes on to explore how some of this material could be used to bring the mammoth back from extinction. The film raises questions about human nature and where humanity is heading with new biotechnological methods. What role does research play in our society? What are the goals of life science research? What are the technical and ethical limits? After the film screening, young researchers will address these questions, together with the director and the audience.

Premiere of the film “Eskin 4 the Visually Impaired”

Two new film documentaries about the workshop and performance from the media-art
project at ISEA, the International Symposia on Electronic Arts in Durban, South
Africa. These films show that visually impaired people can express their own local problems of climate change, work with complex movements and perform in a world of culture that is so visually dominant. Eskin 4 shows how an art and science platform was created to enablevisually impaired participants from Durban, South Africa to become performers alongside their own stories about ecology. They were also encouraged to explore new orientation skills through real-time technologies and participate in a wonderful tribute to the biodiversity of the Durban coastline.
Plus a panel discussion entitled: TEAMWORK TECHOLOGIES for COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT
