We believe that exposure of our doctoral researchers to ethical and political questions is important for their development towards mature scientists. All junior researchers are prepared for their societal role by the annual Science-Ethics-Politics event run by ZIBI GS. Science-Ethics-Politics is designed to promote discussion and provide education on the growing public and political interest in science and the individual scientist in society.
