Festive Session 2019
On March 2nd we celebrated our 29th Festive Session. The festivities started on Friday March 1st with an interdisciplinary symposium on “Complexity and Integration in Nature and Society” and the traditional evening reception at the Salzburg Residence. On Saturday we had the pleasure to welcome around 80 new members from 26 different countries, who were inaugurated as ordinary Academy members. The Festive Speech was delivered by our new member Emmanuelle Charpentier on the topic “CRISPR-Cas9: A genome engineering technology that revolutionises life sciences and medicine”.
Thank you to all who joined our events!
