Covid-19 has profoundly changed our societies, and the world will never be the same as it was before the pandemic - recent social and economic changes will have a serious impact on our future. Also, the pandemic has shown us how important scientific research is: communicating research findings to the general public is more important than ever before.
The main goal of the project is to build resilience and contribute to a society where people are better informed and more aware of the impacts of Covid-19, understand the global interconnections and are less exposed to fake news and conspiracy theories. People will have the opportunity to learn and reflect on the common challenges and form opinions based on research evidence and critical discussion. By combining science and arts, the project has three main activities:
- Workshop for high school students in the BarabásiLab: Hidden patterns exhibition at the Ludwig Museum. Application information for schools can be found below.
- Covid Conversations: a series of online discussions with British and Hungarian experts to discuss the various aspects of the pandemic.
- Science communication program for university students focusing on the visualisation of research data. Application information for university students can be found below.
Partners: Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Arts, Szertár, Hungarian Academy of Sciences
The program is supported by the UK Embassy.
