Event description
BCN Symposium on Truth and Trust in Science

About this event

There is a growing debate on trust and truth in Science, both within the scientific community and in the broader public arena. Within science, researchers are more aware of problems in the way science is organized. Controversial issues include poor reproducibility of findings, competition between scientists and journals for high impact and ‘first findings’, the role of the funding system and the influence of commercial interests.

On a societal level, people have become more sceptical of scientific facts. Politicians, opinion makers and the general public may have trouble recognizing fact from fiction, and ‘alternative facts ’ are used to support different agendas. This has been especially visible recently, with a substantial proportion of the general public finding the science behind containment measures or vaccines against the coronavirus not trustworthy enough.

The BCN Conference ‘Nothing but the Truth’ will be devoted to ‘truth and trust in science’, both within the scientific community and in the broader arena. During a one-day conference, we will discuss several important topics in plenary lectures and interactive workshops by renowned experts. Confirmed speakers include John Ioannidis, Eric-Jan Wagenmakers, Heather Douglas and Hanneke Hulst.

We especially invite researchers who are in early stages of their careers, and we hope that the discussions during our conference can help form basis for values and opinions carried throughout their academic path.

Organiser BCN

Organiser of BCN Symposium Nothing but the Truth

The Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN) is a research and training center  for the study of normal and pathological processes of the nervous system at the University of Groningen and the University of Twente, the Netherlands. Our main objectives are twofold:
- initiate, stimulate  and integrate scientific research on the biological bases of behavioural and   cognitive processes
- to provide our PhD  students with an integrated training program consisting of courses, lectures, master classes, workshops, seminars, symposia and multidisciplinary research

Some 300 senior researchers, 50 postdoctoral researchers and about 250 PhD students from five faculties within the University of Groningen participate in BCN. Research ranges from molecular processes to the whole organism and from yeast to humans.
