Science Café: Learning from Mistakes

Trial and Error

Trial and error is a fundamental method of problem solving in science. In this Science Café, we will not focus on the great breakthroughs, but want to hear about all that went wrong - and yet brought important insight. How can we make sure we really learn from mistakes? When do mistakes start to endanger a project? What about a second chance?

These experts are available for discussion:
- Dr. Cristoph Zechner, research group leader, MPI-CBG
- Ulrich Braun, theologian & philosopher
