Home Activities Public Lectures Introduction
Scientific discoveries are increasingly in the news, but are increasingly complex at the same time. As profound as their impact on our lives is, the need for communicating science to the public has become ever more imperative. KIAS recognizes and enjoys the importance and value in sharing new scientific knowledge and joys of creative inquiry with a wider community through a variety of programming. This very popular series of 3-4 public lectures each year takes advantage of the presence of so many distinguished scientists at the Institute. Speakers of these lectures are recipients of prestigious scientific awards including Nobel laureates, Fields Medalists, Ho-Am Prize awardees, Korea Science Prize winners, and others. Through this program, KIAS purports to communicate with general public the substance and importance of basic sciences, and promote healthy scientific culture in our society.
