#Science Week Berlin in November 2019

Dinosaurs meet food innovations

It is a first time in many respects: this year, for the first time, the Natural History Museum in Invalidenstraße is part of Berlin's Science Week, which takes place from November 1 to November 10, 2019. And for the first time, Science Week will feature the theme of food, represented by the Global Food Summit. Science Week itself is an international platform where the most renowned researchers, researching companies, media and politicians meet every year and where universities, research institutions or companies all over Berlin open their doors for a week and offer insights into their research. The highlight and conclusion of this week is the "Conference of Falling Walls".

The theme of the Global Food Summit at this year's Science Week is "Circular Food and Artificial Intelligence". We are already inviting you to visit us between dinosaurs and ammonites (admission free, of course). Our speakers at Science Week will be:

Prof. Christian Ulrichs from HU Berlin, Department of Crop and Animal Sciences,
Dr. Ousmane Badiane, Director Africa of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) from Washington,
Dr. Ariane Krause, 
Leibniz-Institut für Gemüse- und Zierpflanzenbau (IGZ), Programmbereich 4 HORTSYS „Gartenbausysteme der Zukunft“ und Forschungsgruppe „Anbausysteme geregelte Umwelt“
Dr. Frank Thiemann, 
Head of Biomarker Discovery & Assay Development, Animal Nutrition and Innovation and Industrialization, EVONIK
Sebastian Cerone, Co-Founder of Less Industries
and of course the Head and Founder of the Global Food Summit, Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein. 

Please make a note of 6 November from 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. and discuss with us how we will feed ourselves in the future. With a tyrannosaurus behind us, the topic of food has a completely different meaning once again.
