Other Events

The Origins Project hosts a variety of different types and formats of events for the academic community, as well as the public. We bring together key researchers from a wide variety of disciplines to explore forefront issues to increase public awareness through creating experiences for the public to participate in events and through our growing Origins Project Education Portal.

In addition to our Great Debates and Dialogues we host lectures, colloquia, dinners, films, artistic events, and scientific workshops, as well as scientific and adventurous cruises to key destinations around the world. We partner with several other major institutions to organize our programming and develop content for our events and are open to extending collaborations.
