Future Lab: Where Science Meets Communication

Interdisciplinary Science Forum

12-13 October 2023

For whom:

  • Early-career researchers who want to improve their science communication skills
  • Partners from outside academia and active in public engagement of science (companies, museums, etc.)


  • Keynote lectures
  • Hands-on workshops
  • Meet the experts

In an era of rapid scientific advancements, such as artificial intelligence and biotechnology, and amidst complex and controversial issues like climate change and public health emergencies, effective science communication becomes even more crucial. It plays a pivotal role in countering misinformation and fake news, building trust in scientific findings, inspiring curiosity, and fostering collaboration to tackle societal challenges.

The Future Lab: Where Science meets Communications aims to provide a collaborative platform to showcase innovative science communication formats, foster new partnerships and spark excitement among scientists and communicators. The Future Lab also serves as a platform for exploring and discovering news perspectives on career paths and skill sets within the realm of science communication.

Venue: ESZ building (Rudower Chausse 26, 12489 Berlin-Adlershof)

Please register until October 2, 2023.
