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.

Highlights 2019

A New Digital Platform for Global Exchange

This year, we have transformed into a hybrid platform and added a new layer to its physical structure: digital content! It has been a great opportunity to enrich Berlin Science Week with digital events, which made it much easier for new and international organisations to take part, and to reach out to new, digital audiences.

Together with all participating organisations we have gathered some of the brightest minds and most exciting scientific advances globally to inspire a discussion on how science and innovation can contribute to the future state of our world. More than 500 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 over 65 000 people 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.
