"Science Shapes Our Future" a lecture by Dr. Ryoji Noyori, a Nobel Prize-winning chemist

On 22 July 2013 a Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Ryoji Noyori will give a lecture in Kyiv, Ukraine

"As my half-century of research reflects, the act of turning facts into values is often facilitated by dialogues. Thus, to acquire the necessary combined wisdom, scientists must have ongoing conversations with the societies they serve, as well as with their counterparts in other nations,” claims Dr. Ryoji Noyori.

Dr. Ryoji Noyori is the President of RIKEN, the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research of Japan; and Chairman of the Science and Technology Council at the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. His scientific contributions have been recognized by numerous awards including the Tetrahedron Prize (1993), the Japan Academy Prize (1995), the Arthur C. Cope Award (1997), the King Faisal International Prize for Science (1999), the Order of Culture (2000), the Wolf Prize in Chemistry (2001), and the Roger Adams Award (2001). In 2001, he shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry with W. S. Knowles and K. B. Sharpless.

According to Dr. Noyori, science-based technologies and the innovations derived from them are the foundation of the civilized society in which we live today. All scientific endeavours begin with observations, or facts. However, the ultimate goal of research activity is to convert accumulated knowledge to something with new technological, economic, or social value. Innovation is an essential aspect to assure the national competitiveness and also the continued survival of humanity.
