"We want to celebrate science together, get excited about nature and research, get into conversation with each other and shape the future together!" says Johannes Vogel, Director General of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.

The 6th Berlin Science Week from 01 to 10 November 2021 presents its programme with 200 events and 500 speakers from all over the world - online and live! The festival programme includes a range of formats such as panel talks, workshops, science slams, exhibitions, performances and livestreams, which are available to all visitors after registration.

The Berlin Science Week Campus at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin invites you to hybrid events and exhibitions on 05 and 06 November. Parallel to the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, topics from the fields of climate change and sustainability will be discussed at the Berlin Science Week. At the Campus, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will host a panel discussion on how to sustainably anchor climate protection in society and the economy with the question of how European research and innovation will tackle the climate crisis. The new President of the European Research Council, Maria Leptin, will exchange views with representatives of the Berlin University Alliance on the transformative impact of science at the Campus on 6 November. The Campus will also host the book launch "Sonnenmikroskope, Winkelmesser, Drehapparate - Historische Instrumente im Museum für Naturkunde Berlin".
As part of Berlin Science Week, LAS invites you to a conversation between the artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen and the ornithologist Dr Kim Mortega from the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin on 09 November. The conversation will focus on the recently completed exhibition Berl-Berl and the (virtual) wetlands of Berlin.
Insects are the stars of the science variety show Glitzern und Denken, which offers an entertaining insight into the museum's current research, collection and digitisation from 2 - 4 November. The shows will be streamed on YouTube.
The entire programme is available here.
