Young scientists from four Clusters of Excellence of the Berlin University Alliance present their research work in a science slam in the Mall Anders learning lab in the Wilma Shoppen shopping centre.

Instead, be curious about neuroscience, intelligence research, liberal orders, and catalysis research for more sustainability - anything that serves to illustrate this is permitted: costumes, props, films, PowerPoint presentations or experimental set-ups. The only limit is time; the slammers have fifteen minutes each! Many of the candidates are taking part in a science slam for the first time and are ready to leave the ivory tower of science. In the end, the audience decides who will be honoured as the winner. If you want to go deeper into the content, the participants will be ready to talk to the visitors afterwards over cool drinks. Come to our Science Slam - it's very excellent!
