The conference will serve as the launch for the IANUS project, the aim of which is to strengthen warranted trust in science by fostering participation in research as a co-creative and inclusive process, sensitive to societal values, concerns and needs. As a result, the conference will offer the chance to get in touch with colleagues to gain new insights into the link between science and society. The event will conclude with networking at the EUR-campus, during which you can reflect on the impressions with colleagues and other participants.
