Projektinformationen

This project analyses how scientific expertise and trust can be generated under conditions of deep uncertainty and urgency, as illustrated by the current Corona pandemic. It aims to develop a set of principles for guiding scientifically informed public debate and policy advice. Pooling the resources of philosophy of public health, philosophy of science, and social epistemology, the project fosters a critically informed public understanding of the science/public-policy interface.
