The Center for Science, Ethics, and Public Policy and the UD Philosophy Department sponsor and coordinate informal discussions of cutting-edge research at venues near the UD campus. Each discussion features a science or engineering faculty member who explains his or her research in sufficiently non-technical terms so as to facilitate discussion and improve the public understanding of science. The intended audience includes students, faculty, and the broader community. The presenters are asked to focus the presentation on questions like:
- What are the basic processes of data production and analysis?
- What are the likely benefits (technologies, therapies, knowledge, etc.) that could come from this research?
- Does this research contribute to (or benefit from) a body of knowledge in another scientific discipline?
