Sustainable World: Global Challenges for Life Scientists


This was a collaborative event organized by the Life Science Network Munich, the life science graduate programs in the greater Munich area, affiliated with the LMU, TUM, Helmholtz Zentrum and the MPIs. Our network hosts events on superordinate topics broadly relevant for life scientists, such as good scientific practice (Responsible Research 2014/2017) and emerging technologies (Cutting-Edge Technologies 2015).

For 2019, we addressed the topic of sustainability, with support from the Forum für Verantwortung.
Thanks to all of the speakers who presented expert talks on their topics related to sustainability, world health issues, environment and climate change, you gave our audience many interesting and constructive information towards achieving sustainability and Global Goals.

In view of the event topic, Sustainable World, the program was only available online!
