Berlin Science Week is an annual science festival taking place from 1 to 10 November, bringing together thousands of people from the worlds of science, business, politics, the arts, and society at large. Its mission is to strengthen vibrant and diverse scientific networks as well as to facilitate a fruitful, open, and interdisciplinary dialogue between science and society. Guided by the leitmotif ‘Dare to Know’, the festival partners with organisations from around the globe to showcase scientific excellence, promote debates on the world‘s major challenges, and find new, interactive, and fun ways to make science, research, and innovation engaging.
The theme of this year’s Berlin Science Week organised by Falling Walls in the Berlin Natural History Museum was ‘Paradigm Shift. Co-Creating a Sustainable Now’. With this in mind, BIOCOM created a Bio-based Späti (Kiosk) to be part of the two-day Campus, a “discovery” space where visitors had the chance to deepen their knowledge and become engaged.
