Values in science

Datum: 17 - 18 maj 2021
Tid: Ca 09.00–17.00

The topic of the workshop is values in science and will focus mainly on the role that epistemic and non-epistemic values play in climate science. Sub-topics in this area include:

  1. how values enter into the construction of global climate models,
  2. how uncertainty should be taken into account in modelling the climate, as well as in making policy decisions to curb climate change,
  3. how to determine what counts as a “worst-case scenario” of climate change, and
  4. the proper role of the scientist in public debates where science is an important factor.
