TEDxDelftSalon: Redefining High-impact Science

Welcome to the TEDxDelftSalon: small, monthly events that will take place in the HIVE room at TU Delft Library. One TED talk, one live speaker and a discussion afterwards.

Guenevere Prawiroatmodjo (4th of August 1986, Nijmegen) has studied Applied Physics at Delft University of Technology and is currently starting a high-tech company with Leo Kouwenhoven, professor at the research group Quantum Transport.

High-impact science is currently defined as achieving the highest possible number of publications with the highest possible number of citations. But is this enough? What does ‘impact’ really mean? By embedding the impact on society in the definition of scientific success, we could not only achieve faster scientific discovery, but also revolutionize the way science is done.

TEDxDelftSalon will take place during lunchtime (lunch will be provided) from 12.30 until 13.30. All talks will be in English and registration is mandatory.
