Title: The value of science in the diesel car emissions scandal
Authors: Malina, Robert
Issue Date: 2019
Citation: 1st Symposium of the U Hasselt Centre for Environmental Sciences, Maasmechelen, 26/02/2019
Abstract: This presentation discusses the contribution of scientific inquiry for the discovery and analysis of excess emissions from diesel passenger cars, against the backdrop of science often being criticized as being too slow to provide advice to policy-makers, not concerned with the problems of real people, and just "one thruth" out of many. The presentation argues that dieselgate research is an one example for the ability of science to abandon the ivory tower and to provide timely answers for questions of high societal urgency.
