Keynote introductory lecture will address the theme of the conference, i.e. Actions towards a more sustainable future, lesson learned from the crisis. The lecture will be divided into three topics, each defying the crisis differently.

The talks will focus on:

– environmental,

– demographic/social crises,

– educational/communication crisis,

and consequent challenges for a life science university and academic community. The introductory lecture itself will be prepared in the TED talk formula. Each talk will be extended by a corresponding workshop.
