NCCR MSE and Locarno Film Festival launch pioneering cooperation

World-renowned Locarno Film Festival and NCCR MSE merged expertise to initiate a unique cooperation: for its 72nd edition (August 7-17, 2019) the festival invited NCCR MSE to discuss the ethical challenges of its research and to join the new "BaseCamp laboratory of ideas" with a group of young scientists (PhD students and Postdocs). On August 16, 2019 NCCR MSE staged one of the three "Locarno Talks la Mobiliare" and discussed "The ethical challenges of engineering life and the effects on human identity". Presenting this Swiss National Science Foundation project will be NCCR co-director Daniel Müller (ETHZ), human developmental biologist Barbara Treutlein (ETHZ) and NCCR ethicist Ralf Stutzki (Basel University).
