The Berliner Sparkasse and the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin started a five-year cooperation on 1 July 2019. The common goal: to provide broad sections of the population with a clear view ("Durchblick") of scientific and economic topics - this is the motto of the cooperation projects. Last year, Berliner Sparkasse donated one million euros to the museum on the occasion of its 200th anniversary.
New "Durchblick" event series and podcast
Under the motto "Durchblick", a series of events will start in autumn 2019 in the experimental field of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. The two partners are also planning a joint podcast series. There are more than enough exciting topics for both formats: bizarre creatures of the deep sea, successful business start-ups, undiscovered collections, the origin of our solar system, artificial intelligence, research in times of fake news or the question whether we could survive without insects.
Wissenschaft im Sauriersaal
In addition, Berliner Sparkasse will enable the continuation of the successful "Wissenschaft im Sauriersaal" series from 2020. In the event format at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, the lecturers take the audience on a journey into foreign worlds, solve nature's riddles or illustrate abstract phenomena - comprehensibly and from the entire spectrum of life and natural sciences. The series of events that the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin have been organising since 2016 takes place eight times a year and is always fully booked.
Free admission for all children
During the autumn holidays, Berliner Sparkasse will be hosting a large children's festival in the museum's Sauriersaal for the second time. All children who are not travelling during the autumn holidays are cordially invited on 16 October 2019. Admission is free.
