on May 19, 2016 to the Science Day – 2016 will be held Discussion Event 

“Science. Society. Personality”

 

International discussion event is aimed to determine the priorities of the triad «Science - Society - Personality» under discussion, which involves leading scientists and science managers in Ukraine and abroad. That discussion will be complemented by the thematic reports on the Round table.

Joint projects, in which both governmental and private structures are involved, become more widespread. Creation of new scientific knowledge assumes an international character. Scientific and technological innovation is the most powerful engine of social progress, and knowledge is the potential for viability. The Science is a highlight in society: producing new knowledge, improving education, enhancing quality of life.

It is important to understand the role of science in society and at the same time to involve research teams consisting of leading experts from different areas to solve social problems by:

- widening the involvement of society to research and innovation processes;

- promoting the research results and thus paying attention to scientific achievements;

- considering the gender equality among scientists and finding ways for wider involvement of young people in science;

- promoting the scientific and the educational activities.

The Round table will discuss the following thematic areas:

- Science to solve environmental problems;

- The Science and The Art;

- The information technologies to Society.

It is supposed to analyze the fundamental changes that are experiencing in science, culture and education in connection with the widespread implementation of computer technology and the fast-moving development of the cognitive sciences, which are based on interdisciplinary.  The wide and constructive research of the scientific knowledge bases, which are realized in information, will be represented by programs of creating information and knowledge Society.

Ideas overlap between science and art in the knowledge of nature, previously motivated by the culture of the Renaissance, according to which beauty is not only localized within artistic knowledge and truth is not determined only by the frameworks of scientific research.

Complex system science bridges the natural and social sciences, enriching both, and reduces the gap between science, engineering, and policy.
