Creat­ing the Future

Hector Fellow Academy Symposia

The annual symposia of the Hector Fellow Academy aim to put current scien­tific topics into a socio-polit­i­cal context. Lectures by renowned acade­mics, politi­cians and repre­sen­ta­tives of indus­try link the research topics of the Hector Fellows with key challenges of our time. Discus­sion panels improve the dialog between science and the general public and help start discus­sion on issues relevant for the future.

Besides this public event, the symposia also provide a frame­work for inter­nal meetings. The Hector Fellows and the young scien­tists, supported by the Academy, talk about the status of the current projects and may develop novel research ideas. During these inter­nal sessions, the new candi­dates for doctoral positions and the appli­ca­tions for inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Hector Fellow projects are discussed.
