BIOS is an independent, multidisciplinary research unit comprising eight researchers. The BIOS Research Station on Vallisaari Island looks at instances where the environment and economy are so radically dissociated that the connection between them is virtually severed. BIOS will share information from around the world and strive to transform abstract scientific knowledge into an experience that is as concrete as possible for visitors. The members of the collective shed light on this issue from a variety of perspectives. During the biennial, BIOS will also host lectures by visiting scientists, seminars, and a variety of other events.
At the event researchers from a multidisciplinary research unit introduce their projects and recount the current points of friction in science, politics, and media. The audience has an opportunity to ask questions and make comments before and during the event: The Twitter hashtag is #BIOSstation.
The event will be organised on Zoom.
