Where: online


Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation (CZELO) and its partners are pleased to invite you#### to the Science Café with Lukáš Tóth, an unconventional open discussion, this time exceptionally held online, focused on the topic of information flow
in times of COVID-19.

Regular flow of information has been disrupted. Reality and public expectations are changing on a daily basis. Reaction-time pressure creates an unseen urgency. Governments of the world stand in front of an immense task: how to optimize and prioritize public information so that it has the desired impact? COVID19-related fake stories and official measures have emerged around the globe. Some hilarious, others already having more serious consequences.

Lukáš Tóth is an economist and co-founder of the research company Behavio Labs. His specialisations are behavioural experiments and market regulation. He regularly writes economics columns for the news media and has co-authored part of the internationally bestselling book Economics of Good and Evil. He has been a visiting researcher in the USA and UK. His Alma Mater is Charles University and his current affiliation is University of Amsterdam.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

More information can be found here and registration is available below.

Science Café is jointly organized by the CZELO, Czech Centre Brussels, Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU, Representation of the Pilsen region in Brussels, Delegation of Prague to the EU and Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Kingdom
of Belgium.
