BERLIN SCIENCE WEEK IS A WRAP

Ten insightful, exciting, engaging, inspiring and fun days to celebrate science are already over. Between 1-10 November 2022, Berlin was the place to be for scientific exchange and conversation, with a diverse programme of more than 200 in-person and online events. In interactive formats that ranged from panel talks, workshops, exhibitions to VR-experiences and film screenings, the most outstanding scientists addressed topics such as Health & Wellbeing, Discovering Earth & SpaceSocietal Trends & TransformationsArt & Science and many more.

On 4 and 5 November, we once again turned the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin and the adjacent Humboldt-Universität into our festival centre – the CAMPUS – and presented many interesting events, exhibitions, and interventions around the theme ‘Paradigm Shift. Co-Creating a Sustainable Now!‘.

We’ve witnessed lively debates, controversial discussions, fruitful conversations and enriching encounters, and are more than happy that most of these could take place in person. We are delighted with the great outcome of the festival and we thank everyone involved!

Stay tuned and mark your calendars for our 8th edition, which will take place between 1–10 November 2023!

You’ll also find exciting content pieces in the Berlin Science Week Magazine, which is published every year in collaboration with Der Tagesspiegel. Our community portraits also offer you the chance to better get to know the scientists behind the events.

WHY BERLIN SCIENCE WEEK

When people think of research, science and innovation, a festival is not the first thing that comes to mind. That’s why we founded Berlin Science Week! Only if we constantly look beyond our own horizons and are prepared to engage in a transdisciplinary dialogue, can we face up to the great challenges.

Research and its impact cannot stay hidden in the ivory tower – as the pandemic has clearly shown. However, science related formats don’t necessarily have to take place in a boring or aloof manner. From exhibitions to guided tours, impulse lectures or fish bowl formats, there are many possibilities to convey knowledge in a vibrant and entertaining way.

Therefore, we invite everyone from science, politics, business, media, the arts, and the broader public to deepen their knowledge and become engaged in the discourse on the present and future of our world.
