November 20-23, the World Science Forum 2019 will be held in Budapest. The conference will focus on ethics and responsibility in science, ranging from the ethics of science funding to the ethical conduct of science, and from science diplomacy to the ethics of science communication. I’ll have the privilege to give the keynote at the opening ceremony on Nov 20 in the Palace of Arts.
