The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is hosting a summer course on science and religion at Cambridge University from 30th June - 5th July.
This year a Scholarship Fund is available for delegates from Hong Kong which will cover the full cost of attending the Course, including economy travel between Hong Kong and Cambridge. The application deadline is 29th March. The scholarships are awarded by competition as only a limited number are available.
Graduates or undergraduates from any university, of any faith or none are welcome to apply. The Course will have 15 well-known lecturers from around the world representing the present Big Questions in the field of science and religion.
See the Faraday Institute's website for information and registration.
Continuing from the Redeeming Technology series, we are now organising a series of workshops on The Future of Business in a Technological Age. These five workshops brings together business leaders, technologists, and academics to consider, from a Christian perspective, the systemic issues facing business in light of technological advances, and the challenges and opportunities arising from these.
The next session is on 16th March and considers Technology and the Global Order of Business.
The final session is on 27th April and looks at Un-commodifying the World.
Science and religion have had a long and complex relationship over thousands of years. Their engagement is shaped by factors inherent to the areas of scientific and religious activity involved, as well as by the historical and cultural contexts. Academic scientists in Hong Kong are more religious than the general population, and yet the political, religious and scientific history of the region means that engagement between science and religion here is relatively in its infancy. In this setting, the Faith and Science Collaborative Research Forum seeks to develop and enrich the interactions between religion and science/engineering research in Hong Kong.
