In a world that is constantly in motion, constantly changing, momentum is present in our everyday life. With Momentum, we wanted to by present a selected variety of talks from scientists, artists, and entrepreneurs, reflecting the ideas in motion of their respective fields. The topics covered ranged from robotics; blockchain and Bitcoin; nuclear fuel; to human privacy and digitalization; what it meant to achieve successful communication, make an audience listen, and the challenges of learning a foreign language were delicately touched upon.
We chose the theme Boldness to set a focus on the courage it often takes to stand up for an unconventional idea. A great idea can easily be forgotten if there is no bold person standing behind it, enthusiastically spreading that idea. Accompanying this theme, an interactive framework program encouraging interaction was realised. A diverse audience consisting of students of all kinds of subjects, alumni and other locals contributed to particularly interesting conversations. Our speakers took us from microplastic in the oceans; to black holes in space; back to the highlands of Bolivia; and finally to the Mediterranean Sea.
