Berlin Science Week begins on Nov. 1, for its third year, bringing scientists together to network in the city. Last year’s events attracted 15,000 visitors and this year’s robust program hopes to draw even more with happenings taking place in bars, an opera house, and even the U-Bahn.

We heard from Berlin Mayor Michael Müller who launched the event at a press conference this week. We also spoke to Tatjana König, the managing director of the Falling Walls Foundation which coordinated the events, and from participants Gisbert Schneider, professor at ETH Zürich and Dr. Carsten Hucho, from the Paul Drude Institute, about what to expect.

Berlin Science Week runs from Nov. 1 – 10. You can follow our coverage of Berlin Science Week on air, on this website and via our social media.
