Penicillin, artificial fertiliser, the Red Cross and climate economics – these are examples of initiatives that have been beneficial to humankind. We will inaugurate our new exhibition with a panel discussion on how science shapes our lives and responds to the challenges of our era.

The discussion will be moderated by Swedish radio personality Fritte Fritzson, known for his podcast Allt du velat veta (Everything You Wanted to Know). The other panellists are Line Gordon, researcher on sustainable food and director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre; John Hassler, professor of economics at Stockholm University; Emma Frans, researcher in medical epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet and a well-known science communicator; and Gabriel Skantze, professor of speech communication and technology at the Royal Institute of Technology and co-founder of Furhat Robotics.

The panel discussion will be held in Swedish.
