Series of scientific lectures in Rotterdam

A series of scientific lectures under the name of "The Hoboken Lectures" start on March 9, hosted by the Natural History Museum Rotterdam and the British Council in cooperation with Codarts.

"The Hoboken Lectures will demonstrate the role scientific research and cultural activities play in understanding modern society and reposition the debate where it firmly belongs, in the public sphere of engaged and committed citizens. The audience will have plenty of opportunity to respond to the speaker and contribute to the discussion," inform the organisers.

The first lecture "From "Big Bang" to Biosphere" on March 9 will feature Astronomer Royal, Lord Martin John Rees, Baron Rees of Ludlow, who is a British astrophysicist. It will be followed by Q&A session and end with a musical performance of "Codarts" - students from Rotterdam Conservatoire.
