Invitation: Nominations for the 2023 award for the promotion of culture and science at KI (Dnr 2-1919/2023)
The interplay between science and culture in various forms is very central to a university. Cultural, as well as interprofessional and interdisciplinary activities bring students and staff together, and contribute to "we-feeling" and broader perspectives. Medical science as well as Medicine attributes its roots to both the humanities and the natural sciences.
KI strives to integrate science with culture in order to enrich everyday activities and strengthen KI's importance for societal development (see the KI vision Strategy 2030). KI has a responsibility to act as a driving force for the dissemination of and dialogue about knowledge in society.
Interaction between science and culture in various forms is essential to a university. Cultural, as well as interprofessional and cross-disciplinary activities bring students and employees together, and contribute to a "we-feeling" and broadened perspectives. Medical science, like the art of medicine, traces its roots to both the humanities and the natural sciences.
According to this spirit, KI's Cultural Council annually pays attention to one or more people at KI, whose valuable efforts have promoted the meeting between culture and science, both within the cultural sphere at KI and/or in its interaction with society. This applies to activities in education and/or research.
