In a world of fast-paced change, we confront pressing global challenges that require our capacity to adapt - from climate change, resource scarcity, geo-political conflicts to rising inequality. Our ability and responsibility to take action is a fundamental part of being human. Therefore, crafting new, resilient skills is crucial to shaping and answering today's and tomorrow's questions.

However, what skills are required to make a real difference, whether in industry, academia, or society? Do these skills vary in the context of different living realities and cultural backgrounds?

This also raises the question of responsibility - what kind of responsibility do young researchers, as future leaders, bear for shaping tomorrow's world? And how can we reflect on this responsibility and our moral compass while planning our individual futures and careers?

Get inspired and join us for an exciting panel discussion that brings together a diverse group of speakers to explore the topic of future skills with regard to current challenges humanity faces.
