Maja Horst speaker at Interdisplinary Excellence Seminar

Associate Professor Maja Horst, Head of the Department for Media, Cognition and Communication, and member of the steering group for Center for Synthetic Biology is speaker at a half-day symposium on Interdisciplinarity at the Humanomics Research Center, University of Copenhagen

Interdisciplinary Excellence: Interdiscisplinarity is emerging as one of the key drivers of scientific research and research-based solutions in contemporary knowledge societies. Many of the most exciting and influential ventures in science today are seen as interdisciplinary, for example cognitive neuroscience, behavioural economics or synthetic biology. Humanomics Research Centre invites everyone to an afternoon with Professor Robert Frodeman who will give an introduction to what he sees as the most pressing challenges in driving sustainable interdisciplinarity. After the presentation, four speakers will give their responses and perspectives on the challenges presented by Prof. Frodeman, including interventions from two of the most influential private and public research foundations in Denmark (The Lundbeck Foundation and The Danish National Research Foundation)
