Berlin Science Week is a 10-day international festival between 1 — 10 November bringing together the world’s most innovative scientific organisations to celebrate science, to connect and to engage the local and international science community with the public.
As a hub for interdisciplinary dialogue, our mission is to enable and strengthen an international and diverse scientific network. Berlin Science Week gives greater visibility to science, research and innovation. It is the global platform for dialogue and collaboration between science and society that inspires a deeper understanding of our world.
A Platform For Dialogue and Collaboration in Science
Since its inception in 2016 Berlin Science Week has become a true hub for scientific dialogue and exchange, and in 2019 over 20,000 visitors participated in over 140 physical events across the city. More than 400 speakers discussed some of the most pressing issues of our time at the intersection of science and society in a variety of public and invitation-only events.
Berlin Science Week Campus opened its doors for the first time as a two-day central festival hub at Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. 30 events and 14 exhibitions were visited by more than 2,300 attendees.
In 2020, due to the pandemic, we decided to suspend the Campus. However, we hope to further develop and expand the successful Campus in 2021, and to invite more organisations to bring their scientific excellence to Berlin.
