Live streaming the event

We are now offering you live streaming of the event "An Open World: Science, Technology and Society in the Light of Niels Bohr's Thoughts".

The University of Copenhagen is gathering international researchers and decision-makers to explore how open access to information and scientific cooperation can help us manage global problems. The conference will focus on contemporary challenges in bioethics, economics, politics, climate, warfare and information technology. We ask:

• Is open access to information the answer to challenges from new technologies?
• What initiatives can improve the relationship between science and politics?

The action - a new open letter
In 1950 Niels Bohr wrote an open letter to the UN in which he urged world leaders to address the challenges of new technologies. His ideal was “an open world” with free sharing of knowledge and international co-operation. The conference reinvigorates Bohr’s vision, and will conclude by writing a new open letter to the UN.
