Brave New World

Our world is ever-changing and developing at a fast pace. To anticipate on an inter-connected future society, we need people from different fields working together to solve complex problems and to understand the multidisciplinary contexts in which they occur. Hence, after a long age of continued specialisation, the technical and social branches of science and philosophy are intertwining once more. In the second edition of the Dutch Honours Conference, we aim to bring Honours students from different studies and backgrounds together so they can reinforce and broaden their perspectives on both science and society. During this conference, we will introduce a variety of topics through mind-blowing lectures, interesting discussions and inspiring workshops. After all, we need different views from excellent students to truly understand the issues of tomorrow. Together with the Dutch Honours students and our partners, we can start to engineer our future at the Dutch Honours Conference 2021!

The Power of Knowledge

"Knowledge is power" is something that many scientists and scholars can agree upon. Knowledge brings us new ideas and shapes the world around us. With all the challenges we are currently facing, one could easily argue that changing the world requires the application of knowledge. But how can we use all the information we are collecting and all the innovations we are creating today to shape the society of tomorrow?



The Limits of Science

While some argue that science can solve all the challenges we face, there are numerous things that scientists do not understand. Diseases for which we cannot find a cure; societal problems for which compromises are hard to find; mathematical problems with no answer; and particle movements that make no sense. Will we ever find answers for the big questions of the universe or will we always remain searching? What are the limits of science?
