Short interviews at World Science Forum

From the editor-in-chief of Nature to the president of EASAC and CERN's communications advisor, we've conducted a couple of flash interviews with various speakers of the World Science Forum. What have we learned from the reproducibility crisis? What are the advisors of European academies working on? Which directions should future particle physics explore? Listen to the recordings for the details!
