Events for science and the public

We take up pressing questions from science and society and would like to discuss them with you: Are renewable energies able to cover the demand for energy? What ethical questions does the use of genetic engineering raise? How can science help politics to make good decisions? What role does the media play in science communication? These are just some of the questions that we would like to put up for debate and that we want to discuss with scientists, students, public figures and citizens.

With our events, we want to enhance the exchange between science and society. In doing so, we want to involve actors from science, politics, economy, the media, culture and society and put forward their different perspectives.

We are looking forward to your participation at our varied programme!
