Call for Participation - 3rd Brandenburg Science Slam

The competition of the sciences in Brandenburg is open again - become part of the state-wide slam project! The application phase has begun.

In spring 2024, the Brandenburg Science Slam will enter its third round. Be there when science comes to life and research becomes an unforgettable experience for a wide audience! The Science Slam is your stage to present your specialist knowledge in an entertaining and captivating way.

What is a science slam?
The Science Slam is a fascinating form of science communication. Here, scientists have the opportunity to present their research topics and findings in a popular scientific lecture. The aim is to inspire and captivate the audience in just 10 minutes. These exciting presentations do not take place in a traditional scientific setting, but rather in locations such as theaters, pubs or clubs.

2024 - Seven locations, countless possibilities
In spring 2024, the Science Slam will be celebrated at seven different locations in Brandenburg. A special grade: all slammers come from Brandenburg's university and science context. Six researchers from different universities and non-university institutions in the state are expected to compete against each other at each location. At the end, the audience will choose the winner.

The dates for your big performance:
-19.04.2024 - Neuruppin
-03.05.2024 - Finsterwalde
