Crossing Border Festival, 2nd edition
Thursday 27 September 2018, CREA + REC-G
In a rapidly changing world scientists are asked to deliver solutions for global problems (e.g. climate, migration, food, big data, quality of life) on many different levels. How can we influence individual and collective behavior in such a way that people, cities and societies can thrive amidst all these fundamental and global shifts?
