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.
We showcase scientific excellence and foster future-thinking SciCo formats to find new, interactive and also fun ways to make science accessible for curious minds from around the world.
A Platform For Dialogue and Collaboration in Science
Since its inception in 2016, Berlin Science Week has become an important hub for interdisciplinary scientific dialogue and knowledge exchange.
In 2020, due to the pandemic, we ventured a completely new approach and developed a new digital concept. Together with all participating organisations from Berlin and abroad we shifted to a fully digital programme. More than 1000 high-class speakers contributed to over 200 digital formats, such as expert panels, workshops, lectures, performances, exhibitions and many more.
The future of work, energy or food, insights into AI, robotic & quantum, climate change, advances in health & medicine, diversity & identity in science, the effects of Covid-19, vertical mobility – these and many other topics were presented and discussed with science enthusiasts from around the globe.
How to Get Involved
Join our mission if you are a national or international university, a research institution, a science-based start-up or an innovative business, a science engagement & science policy initiative, or an interdisciplinary science project.
