About

The Berlin Science Week is an international gathering, bringing together people from the world’s most innovative scientific institutions during 10 days in Berlin. It is dedicated to the dialogue between science and society to inspire a deeper understanding of our world. The Berlin Science Week fosters interdisciplinary exchange and encourages participants to connect and learn from each other.

Quantum Engineering, Good Governance, Social Sustainability, Populism in the 21st Century, Future Breakthroughs, Science Policy – these and many other topics were presented in all their facets and intersections with society. In 2017, the Berlin Science Week hosted 57 events, organised by renowned national and international institutions, such as Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, ETH Zurich, Austrian Institute of Technology, Freie Universität Berlin, IASS Potsdam, Robert Bosch Stiftung, Springer Nature or the University of Waterloo. More than 15 000 people attended lectures, festivals, conferences, panel discussions or workshops.
