Dear friends and supporters,
we are very excited that - also thanks to your amazing support - in the next days the first I, Scientist conference finally will take place. Before the official start of the conference we warmly invite you all to join our kick-off event:
A Science Slam at the Technical University of Berlin, tomorrow evening (Thursday 11th of May).
The focus here is not on the scientific value but more on the way of presenting it. The aim is to reach the hearts and minds of the audience, which is also the jury that selects the winner of the evening.
The entry is free, you can bring your own drinks or help yourself at our minibar where we offer beer, soft drinks,...
Date & Time: Thursday, 11 May, 8:00 pm (Entrance opens at 7:30 pm)
Venue: TU Berlin, main building
