On May 13th 2014 the Royal Physiographic Society held the Symposium “The Responsibility of Research in Society”, which was held at the Grand Hotel in Lund.
Is Swedish research sensitive to trends? Are researchers too compliant, and overly protective of their grants? Can taxpayers trust that high standards for the quality, integrity and long-term vision of the research are achieved? What actually is the situation for research today? These difficult but urgent questions were debated at the symposium by researchers from different disciplines and faculties.

And how visible are the benefits of culturally related research? How does one actually measure the usefulness of research? Usefulness for whom, and for what? Refer to the Publication List.
From Nerves to Pills (Från nerv till piller)
On April 27th 2012, the Royal Physiographic Society, together with the Medical Faculty at the University of Lund, held the symposium “From Nerves to Pills”, held in the Aula of the University Hospital in Lund. The symposium commemorated the 1962 publication of a scientific article by Bengt Falck and Nils-Åke Hillarp, which has come to be one of the most cited papers in the field of Biomedicine. The article describes a new and revolutionary method for detecting important signalling molecules in nerve cells. The new method rapidly opened up new research areas, and these laid the foundation for current research in the neurosciences..
