The ZEIT Science Forum is a series of discussion events. Founded in 2001, it aims to open controversial contemporary issues to critical scrutiny. The forum takes place at the Leibnizsaal of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science.

70 years of constitutional law. Freedom of science - a success story?

Interventions in the human genome, the development of artificial intelligence, experiments on animals - how far can the freedom of science, research and teaching enshrined in the constitutional law go?
According to a survey of the Science Barometer 2018, only 40 percent of respondents believe that scientists are researching for the good of society, 46 percent are undecided. The most important reason to distrust scientists is, according to the respondents, the dependence on donors. How independent are scientists? What significance does freedom of science have for the open society?
But science is also in danger. In the international realm - in Turkey, in Hungary, in the USA - freedom of science has come under pressure in recent years. How do we defend the freedom of research and thought?
