On 5–6 November, Berlin Science Week Campus is our central festival hub at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. With more than 30 events and interactive and fun exhibitions it is the place to be for science enthusiasts!
TWO DAYS PACKED WITH SCIENCE
Have a chat with Albert Einstein, find out how the European Research Area is tackling climate change, take part in a decision theatre, meet women in STEM, discover flowers! – a science show, travel in time and climate, or (maybe) find the answer to the question who owns science! See all Campus events here:
To make the most of Berlin Science Week, connect with fellow participants through our great peer-to-peer platform Braindate. Meet in person in the Braindate Lounge on Campus and meet new (brilliant!) people.
In addition to many exciting events, interactive exhibitions in the middle of the museum invite visitors to exchange knowledge and meet others on the two Campus days. Discover partners and topics here.
The entrance is free. The timed tickets for the Museum für Naturkunde are already fully booked. However, there are still some places available for the events. If you would like to attend an event at the Campus, please check the respective event pages for further information.
Archimedes Exhibitions is an internationally oriented Berlin-based creative agency for science, business, politics and culture.
Since 1996, Archimedes has been creating exhibitions, brand spaces and interactive installations worldwide for renowned companies, science centres, museums, science organisations and political institutions.
The international team is made up of experts from the fields of architecture, graphics, scenography, software development, product design, electronics, editing and many more. In the meantime, over 20 million people have visited the exhibitions in Europe, Asia, Africa, South and North America.
Meet game changers. agenda setters, social innovators and scientists. Talk to our amazing partners at the Bayer Foundation stand and learn how we work together towards a world with H4AH4N (health for all and hunger for none).
At the Berlin Institute of Health of the Charité, the BIH, research on and with cells plays a major role: scientists investigate which cells are affected by the coronavirus, search for cancer stem cells that are the root of the tumour or treat organ recipients with cells of their own immune system to prevent rejection. Can stem cell therapies help with the major common diseases? Unproven therapies tempt us with hasty solutions – how far has research come and what could the medicine of the future look like?
Come by the joint stand of BIH and the German Stem Cell Network, learn the secrets of the jack-of-all-trades stem cells and take part in the big cell quiz to understand BIH’s motto: Turning Research into Health!

#SciencewithImpact meets Naturkundemuseum
From A as in additive manufacturing to Z as in zero emissions: For 150 years we have been researching safe materials and solutions to protect people, the environment and material goods. Come and experience fascinating research, such as 3D printing in space with moon dust, tiny nanoparticles and see how we use thermal imaging cameras to detect damage to wind turbines.
Freedom and individual responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and open-mindedness: ETH Zurich stands on a bedrock of true Swiss values. At ETH Zurich, students discover an ideal environment for independent thinking, researchers a climate which inspires top performance. Situated in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, ETH Zurich is pioneering effective solutions to the global challenges of today and tomorrow.
Every kind of life known to us is based on the action of proteins. The complex interplay of these little “all-rounders” on the nanoscale still holds many secrets. Biologists, chemists and physicists of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1078 in Berlin want to unlock these secrets and are investigating the functions of proteins with experimental and theoretical biophysical and structural biological methods. Using five model proteins as examples, young scientists in the SFB’s Research Training Group want to understand how proton movement controls the way proteins work: in the photosystem of plants for energy generation, in cytochrome c oxidase in the power plant of our cells, in channel rhodopsin for the light manipulation of nerve impulses, in phytochrome, which makes plants flower, and in viroporin, which allows viruses to multiply in the human body.
High-Tech Gründerfonds is Europe´s most active seed investor. Our passion is high tech. We understand our role in the start-up eco system by providing founders with venture capital but also know how and network to implement their high-tech ideas and innovative business models. We are successful in supporting the best founders whose ideas can revolutionize entire industries and improve people´s live.
We would like to offer founders, entrepreneurs and researchers who wants to start a business an insight into start-up topics by sharing information and experience
LAS is a Berlin-based art foundation that brings together art, technology and science. Committed to new ways of presenting art, LAS commissions experimental projects, both physical and digital, in unconventional spaces. LAS is dedicated to future thinking and light is the foundation’s guiding principle – a symbol of imagination, discovery and innovation.
During Berlin Science Week Campus, LAS will inform on its most recent exhibition project Berl-Berl, which was on view from 10 July to 26 September 2021 at Halle am Berghain. For this new commission Danish artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen (*1987, Køge, Denmark) focused on Berlin’s history as a wetland. With the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin as a partner, the artist had access to the vast archives of the museum and used sound recordings and scans of animals and plants to build his virtual world Berl-Berl.
At the LAS booth, visitors can gain insight into this exciting art and science collaboration through a behind-the-scenes video as well as a comprehensive publication showing Kudsk Steensen’s working process as well as his many excursions to Berlin’s wetlands with the scientists from the Museum für Naturkunde.
Pipetting, measuring, finding information – in our Laboratory Olympics you can try out how well you would be suited to everyday laboratory work. Of course, MDC scientists will also explain to you how they want to shape the medicine of the future with their molecular biology projects: from new cancer therapies to corona research.
And last but not least: a lab selfie is included.
Fairwork Exhibition Space
The exhibition of the Fairwork project is dedicated to working conditions of digital platforms like Uber, Gorillas and Lieferando, offered to local workers. The visitors dive into visual and audio testimonies of a platform worker’s life and are encouraged to consider them with regard to fair pay, fair contracts, fair conditions, fair management and fair representation. We welcome anyone to share their thoughts with us and exchange ideas on how to get involved!
Berlin’s former airport Tegel transforms into the Urban Tech Republic. The innovation park will be the place where we research, develop, produce, test, and export solutions for our cities of tomorrow.

The Science City Berlin Adlershof is one of the most successful high-tech locations in Germany. More than 22,000 people work on the 4.2 km² site in eight non-university research facilities, six institutes of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and around 1,200 companies. In addition, there are over 6,000 students.
At the Berlin Science Campus they present themselves together with interesting facts, experiments and insights into current developments:
