Philosopher of science Kevin C. Elliott will address two urgent topics in this event: scientific diversity and open science. Regarding the first, he will present the results of his recent collaborative research project, which has polled more than 3500 scientists to investigate the factors that hinder the presence of diversity in science. During his presentation, the ethical and epistemic reasons for promoting diversity in the scientific community will also be discussed.

Regarding open science, Elliott will discuss how it can better approach non-experts in addition to commenting on the multiple meanings, reasons, and limits that the value of transparency acquires in this context.

After the lecture, guest professors will engage in a discussion to bring specific elements of such themes in Brazil. The audience will have the opportunity to dialogue with the main speaker.
