The Art of Maths by the Wright Colloquia for Science

The Wright Colloquia for science, held biennially at the University of Geneva since 1984, was founded by Dr. H. Dudley Wright with the aim of presenting the latest scientific findings to the general public and especially inspiring young people towards a scientific career.

Dr Wright, an American scientist, businessman, and inventor, was also a prominent personality in the Geneva community from 1965 until his death in January 1992. The Wright Colloquia for science were and remain a concrete way of his saying “thank you” to the people of Geneva for their warm hospitality. 

Several ONLINE lectures and talks will take place from November 2 to 6 around the theme of The Art of Maths, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your home by visiting the website of the Wright Colloquia

Unfortunately, the Wright Colloquia for science will not be able to offer us the splendid “Maths and Brilliant” sound and light show due to the pandemic-which-must-not-be-named but you may watch the trailer while waiting for 2021!
