The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability will host the first “Wine and Science” (Vin & Videnskab) event of the year in collaboration with the National History Museum of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen. 

The topics of the event will be gene technology, cell factories and the future of the world. At this event, you will get an insight into some of the research and technology development that helps define the future. We will meet four international top scientists who are working to help find solutions to some of the world’s major problems.

"We are very pleased with the collaboration as we wish to raise awareness of our research to make it benefit society"
Bernhard Palsson, CEO

How do we produce enough food for the planet’s explosively growing population in a sustainable way? How can we transition to a fossil-free society and, in general, pollute less? And what can we do about the terrifying prediction that by 2050 there will be ten million people who will lose their lives every year because of antibiotic resistance?

“We are very pleased with the collaboration as we wish to raise awareness of our research to make it benefit society," says Bernhard Palsson, CEO at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability.

The speakers are Morten Sommer, Jens Nielsen, Irina Borodina and Bjørn Voldborg – all from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability.

The event takes place on 1 March 2018 from 19-21.15 (7 pm to 9.15 pm) at the Chr. Hansen Auditorium, Building 34.0.01, Center for Health and Society, University of Copenhagen – Bartholinsgade 4A, 1356 København K
