Initiative Seminars

Initiative Seminars at Chalmers represent crucial meeting places for people representing research, innovation and society. The seminars address challenging questions for humanity, important for a sustainable future. Renowned scientists are invited to talk about their work, discuss and in other ways interact with scientists and students at Chalmers. Representatives from industry and society are engaged in the program. Students are involved in workshops and poster exhibitions. An Initiative Seminar always includes a popular science component.
