Public Science

Public Science aims to present complex topics in an easily comprehensible manner in order to make them accessible to a broad audience.

The objective is to impart the necessary knowledge for the public to participate in discussions about the latest scientific findings, and debate the consequences of scientific action. The ZAK | Centre for Cultural and General Studies at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has been host to numerous conferences, symposia, panel discussions, and lectures with internationally renowned experts.

The defining characteristic of these events is their interdisciplinary perspective on science, politics, culture, and economy.

For current information please consult the ZAK’s calendar of events.
