Conferences at UPC Bratislava

Director of IMEB n. f. leads again since the Summer semester of 2008/2009 a regular continuous free public course in bioethics - "Bioethics for the 21st Century". It is devoted to Bratislava universities and colleges students (all disciplines, all levels of study), as well as all interested in bioethics. The course is given in the Slovak language in the form of open conferences. Each session consists of an introductory lecture, which is followed by an "interactive case presentation" (done by 'role playing' technique involving people from the audience) and finished by a free moderated discussion.
