Science Café with Lukáš Tóth - ONLINE

The South Moravian Region and its partners are pleased to invite you to the Science Café with Lukáš Tóth, an unconventional open discussion, this time exceptionally held online, focused on the topic of information flow in times of COVID-19. Regular flow of information has been disrupted. Reality and public expectations are changing on a daily basis. Reaction-time pressure creates an unseen urgency. Governments of the world stand in front of an immense task: how to optimize and prioritize public information so that it has the desired impact? COVID19-related fake stories and official measures have emerged around the globe.

Lukáš Tóth is an economist and co-founder of the research company Behavio Labs. His specialisations are behavioural experiments and market regulation. He regularly writes economics columns for the news media and has co-authored part of the internationally bestselling book Economics of Good and Evil. He has been a visiting researcher in the USA and UK. His Alma Mater is Charles University and his current affiliation is University of Amsterdam.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us on 2 April 2020 at 18:00.

Registration is available at https://geform.tc.cz/Science_café_17. You will receive link to the live streaming two hours prior the event.
