A Panel Discussion with experts from the industry to discuss importance of Scientific Literacy in today's society and world.

Science plays a critical role in nation-building and in improving the lives of individuals, from the development of new technologies and materials to improvements in both physical and mental health. However, the success of science depends not only on the quality of the research but also on the uptake of related innovations by governments, businesses, and the general public, who must be able to separate the good science from the bad to make informed decisions based on solid evidence.

In a “post-truth” world of information overload, echo chambers, and mistrust of experts, this job has never been more difficult. Only a scientifically literate nation can navigate these waters to a safer and more prosperous future, but how do we get there? Who is responsible for cultivating scientific literacy, and how much understanding is enough? This panel discussion will answer these questions by shedding light on key issues in scientific literacy.
