Questions of genetics, in-vitro insemination and lengthening of life will be disscused within the framework of the open four-day courses of the Andorran summer university “Technology and humanity: lights and shadows” (“Tecnologia i Humanitat: llums i ombres”) hosted by the head of the Andorran government, Antony Marti.
He pointed out that technology is a matter of global interest and reminded listeners that science and technology are the base of evolution. However, despite the fact that scientific and technological achievements are indispensable conditions for the development of the human race, they bring new risks related to security and privacy, as well as the guarantee of reliable information.
He also mentioned the success of science in the areas of genetic engineering, artificial insemination and lengthening of life. All these issues will be discussed within the framework of the Andorran summer university.
The lectures are held from 4th to 7th September from 18:00 to 21:00, are open to all and are free of charge.
Real time interpretation services in Catalan, Spanish and French will be available for all listeners.
