The symposium will be held in honour of Alain Aspect for his pioneering contributions in the field of quantum optics. It will bring together – for one day at the French Embassy in Berlin – highly motivated young scientists and students mainly from Germany and France as well as world-leading scientists, amongst them three Nobel laureates.

The event will provide a unique opportunity for these young scientists to engage with pioneers. Their presentations and the following discussions will focus on those scientific findings and breakthroughs that led to „The Second Quantum Revolution“. Its far-reaching scientific and technological implications will largely be discussed.

The 100 Falling Walls Lab Finalists from all over the world spend a day at the Science Park Potsdam-Golm.

After a short introduction of the leading scientific institutions in Germany, they explore the campus and get to visit institutes like the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research, University of Potsdam Faculty of Science, GO:INcubator, and Max Planck Institutes for Gravitational Physics, of Colloids and Interfaces and of Molecular Plant Physiology.

The excursion, organized by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), aims to foster scientific collaboration and exchange between Germany and the rest of the world

Albatross – A Film by Chris Jordan

Albatross is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy.

Albatross is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on earth, tens of thousands of albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic. Returning to the island over several years, chris and his filming team witnessed cycles of birth, life, and death of these magnificent creatures as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. Albatross walks us through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy — and our own complicity — head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for the miracle of life on earth. Stepping outside the stylistic templates of traditional environmental or documentary films, albatross takes viewers on a lyrical guided tour into the depths of their own spirits, delivering a profound message of reverence and renewal that is already reaching an audience of millions of people around the world.
