Celebrating the Diversity of Science


“In a world of increasing complexity we need everyone on board“

Seven scientific institutes celebrate 30 years of cooperation in the Berlin Research Network at POP KUDAMM. The diverse research fields of the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), the Leibniz Institute of Crystal Growth (IKZ), the Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics (PDI), the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS), the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW), the Max Born Institute (MBI) and the Leibniz Research Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) allow us to have an impact on almost all areas of society. Our extraordinary research efforts show us every day how important the great diversity of research topics and approaches, management structures and leadership cultures is. We experience a great diversity of cultures, backgrounds and lifestyles in our institutes.

And that’s exactly what we want to celebrate! With elevator pitches, scientific crosstalk between fish researchers and quantum people, wild animals, crystals, pharmacological research, math and ultra-short lasers, and a good dose of fun. – Ever heard of powerpoint karaoke?

The evening will end with a concert by Saudia Young and Lars Vegas and drinks at the bar

An all-day festival of science at Pop Kudamm.
