The second day of the Online Science Days 2020 focused on the corona pandemic, however not exclusively. During the day, this burning issue was discussed from the perspective of natural as well as economic sciences. This short recap provides a brief insight into what happened during the day – for example concerning our brains.
Quote of the Day
“It is important to distinguish between more and less globalisation and better and less good globalisation.“

Comment of the Day
“It is constructive to see different ideas proposed and confronted between scientists with similar data sets; that is evidence that different perspectives are necessary as well as communication and debate.”

#LINOSD is one of the most inspiring experiences I am living, yet being online. I could not imagine a #NobelPrize saying “innovation comes from young people not listening to old people, I will not give advice for this” #Humility— Isabel Abánades Lázaro (@isabanadeslaza1) June 29, 2020

Outlook on Tomorrow’s Programme
At the heart of Tuesday’s programme are conversations and debates around climate change. Apart from that, the future of chemistry will also play a pivotal role. In addition, the young generation of researchers has again the possibility to present their work in our Next Gen Science Session as well as in the presentations of the Sciathon results – this time on Communicating Climate Change.
