The Winter Enrichment Program 2023 follows knowledge transformation through the lens of Edge – the verge of discovery, where the brave take risks to push frontiers to grow to understand and to change the world through research. Edge will seek out the risk-takers across a wide spectrum, not just inter-disciplinary science pioneers, but the boundary-breakers; the policymakers that enable; the communicators that explain the unexplainable.
Edge will blur the boundaries of disciplines to explore the intersections of energy, digital, food, water, smart health, and environment, bringing adventurous CEOs, deep tech entrepreneurs, and unorthodox inventors to share their insights. Exploring both the technical and social, Edge will ask how they went to the edge and beyond and how they shared their discovery with the world. Edge will encourage a radical assessment of how we break the borders of understanding, collectively and individually. As scientists, artists, explorers, volunteers, and humans – we need to understand how we ignite our individual confidence to step into the unknown and the outcomes of that transformative journey on ourselves and the world around us.
Associate Professor Derya Baran will be the WEP Chair and Professor Xin Gao will be the Co-Chair.
