CBS’ three cross-disciplinary research platforms contribute to CPH:DOX’ Science Programme CPH:SCIENCE


CBS is proud to be content partner to the international documentary festival CPH:DOX this year, and our researchers are ready for the opening panel debate 22 April and several other panels in the section CPH:SCIENCE, discussing how research can contribute to the solution of grand challenges such as inequality, technological development and diversity. Three of our academic directors from the platforms Digital Transformations, Diversity and Difference and Inequality are all contributing to the programme.

‘Solutions’ is the title of the brand new documentary opening the science programme – a group of leading scientists are gathered in the Nevada Desert to discuss global crisis and grand challenges. ‘Do we need an alien invasion to stand together and solve these urgent problems’, one asks, ‘yes, or a pandemic’, another replies. And here we are. In the panel for this premiere is CBS professor (mso) in digital transformations, Mikkel Flyverbom, together with CBS economist, Birthe Larsen, philosopher Vincent Hendrick and astronomer and astrophysicist Anja C. Andersen. Together with moderator Rune Lykkeberg they will take us through a live streamed debate about the overwhelming themes of the documentary.

In the programme you will also find professor (mso) Sara Louise Muhr in the panel debate following the screening of  ’The Hunt for Planet B’ – with a focus on the gender inequality unfortunately still very much alive in academia. Mikkel Flyverbom is also to be found again in the live streaming from Politikens Pressen about the documentary The Brain – this time together with the stellar brain scientist from the movie, Christof Koch, and the Danish science journalist Lone Frank for a discussion about e.g. artificial intelligence and ethics.

Please note that the debates will be either in English or Danish.
