SCIENCE AT THE INTERFACE
As always, LIYSF will aim to cover a broad range of subjects across STEM fields and students will be able to tailor their programme to suit their own STEM interests, however, for the 61st LIYSF we will have the underlying theme of: Science at the Interface.
Scientific disciplines should not be considered as individual subjects as scientific approaches are best employed when disciplines are combined to form a unified and holistic approach
Disciplines are co-dependent to be able to provide effective solutions and therefore we need to consider how science interacts across many different disciplines. This can be considered with merged disciplines, like biochemistry, medical physics and so many others or more broadly as often science solutions combine chemistry, physics, engineering and technology across full deployment.
We shall also consider science in a broader context: at the interface with; society; business; policy; government; as well as implications across not only economics, but also socially and culturally.
Science is uniquely placed to help the world for the future. Science can help tackle some of the issues we face today, such as; energy, food and water security, climate change, biodiversity and potential pandemics.
Never has science been more vital to mankind. Therefore, how science is communicated is even more important today – not just to governments and policy makers, but to everyone. Scientists must be able to articulate their ideas in an effective manner.
LIYSF 2019 will not only consider what the scientific and technological landscape might look in the future and how this can be influenced, but will also equip our students with new knowledge and skills, connections and a broader perspective.
