The purpose of this 2-hour live-program is to stimulate an interdisciplinary discourse between the scientific community and society. Join us for the live talk or tune in to hear Basar Molekular on your favourite radio station.

Leading members of the NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering team discuss (non-) scientific issues with opinion leaders, public figures and personalities from the arts, sports, the private sector, politics, and with the live-audience for this radio production. "Basar Molekular. Der Wissens Talk" is an NCCR-Ethics event and takes place twice a year.
