Pint of Science - The international science festival is coming to Austria


Local research packed into three entertaining evenings – presented by the international festival Pint of Science. For the first time in Austria, scientists will appear for the first time in Austria in the (virtual) bar next door from May 17-19, 2021. Among them Susanne Wolbank, co-director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology.

The six one-hour events are dedicated to the unfathomable dimensions of our universe as well as to tiny inhabitants of earth. How do you photograph a black hole when it is actually invisible? Why do ants explode in Southeast Asia? How do make stem cells feel comfortable outside of our body? At its core, of course, is always the question: What do researchers in Vienna, Graz and Linz work on every day in their laboratories?

Interpersonal relationships are be brought on stage when researchers tell us how language brings us together - or separates us from one another. Two events in English will also focus on our brain and the team from “The Zone” invites you to a new experience in the space that opens up before us orthogonally to science and art.

No prior knowledge is required for enjoying the evenings: Pint of Science wants to make science accessible to all. The complete program can be found at:
