Berlin Science Week is ongoing through Nov. 10, bringing scientists from all over the world to Berlin to collaborate, to engage in dialogue, and celebrate science in events throughout the city. Topics range from artificial intelligence to medicine to climate change.

We want to join this dialogue by introducing an element of surprise. We’ve invited two people from different fields who haven’t met before to find out what they are working on and what they have in common.

Today’s pair is Monika Fuchs and Christian Ulrichs. Monika Fuchs is a professor of Clothing Technology at HTW Berlin University of Applied Sciences and Christian Ulrichs heads the division of Urban Plant Ecophysiology at Humboldt University. What did they talk about? Listen in and find out!

Monika is speaking about the challenges in times of technological and social disruption on Nov. 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and Christian will be part of the panel discussion, “Foodtropolis: Urban.Circular.Food. On the Future of Urban Nutrition” on Nov. 6 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Both events will be in German.
