The seminars series "EMBL Forum on Science and Society" was launched in 1998 to promote awareness within our institute of the impact that work within the life sciences is having on society. The EMBL Forum serves as an arena for multidisciplinary events and activities highlighting the ways in which recent developments within the life sciences in general, and within molecular biology in particular, are having a profound impact on people, their societies as well as their cultures. We invite speakers – experts within various disciplines of science and the humanities – on a regular basis to the EMBL to give public lectures on topics of interest.

What we hope to accomplish with these seminars is to explore and to communicate to diverse audiences the complex nature of the relationships that link the life sciences and society.
