The SCNAT Ethics Series in chemistry has been established to initate discussions about the wide-ranging topic of ethics in chemistry. Internationally renowned speakers are invited to a series of panel discussion and workshops at Swiss universities and federal institutes of technology.
The chosen format is in the "world café" style: short introductory lectures, break-out sessions to discuss specific topics, reports to the plenary followed by a panel discussion with audience participation.
What and why do we publish?
Peter Gölitz (former editor-in-chief of Angewandte Chemie) and Gianfranco Pacchioni (author of "The overproduction of Truth", Prof. em. at Uni Milano-Bicocca) and local panelists discussed this and other questions.
