International Solvay Institutes

Public Events


‘We need scientists to be heard and to be lauded, we need to show that science is a fascinating subject raising intriguing and captivating challenges, and we need to demonstrate that it is extraordinarily important for the future of humanity to pursue scientific advances, which are critical to the survival of human beings on earth. Hence our commitment to public events and lectures.’

Jean-Marie Solvay, great grand-son of Ernest Solvay, President
