Our Borderless Knowledge series and Hungarian news portal Qubit are launching a joint essay competition for university and college students.
CEU’s Borderless Knowledge project, launched in 2019 and housed now at the CEU Democracy Institute, is based on the principle that knowledge belongs to everyone. That scientific breakthroughs and the latest research aiming to solve societal problems should not just be available to the public but should initiate a debate. So that we can find solutions to the world’s challenges, together, as a community.
In the open lecture series CEU professors, leading Hungarian experts and well-known public figures, discuss exciting recent scientific findings and their direct impact on our everyday lives. Most lectures are held in Hungarian, with simultaneous English translation provided.
Do we already have enough knowledge to construct human genes? Should we use this technique for embryos? How do biotechnology and ethics correlate? The latest lecture of the Borderless Knowledge series addressed these questions, and many more.
Since February 2019, the Borderless Knowledge Lecture Series has featured CEU faculty, leading Hungarian experts and well-known public figures discussing recent scientific findings and their direct impact on contemporary life. The last installment, broadcast in English earlier this summer, focused on social research conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
