The organisers of Science March Berlin will host an Open Conference on July 8th at the Technische Universität Berlin (Marchstr. 23): http://marchforscienceberlin.de/

The Open Conference is open to March for Science activists, like-minded initiatives and curious people.

The goal of the event is to develop project ideas for collaboration within the march for science movement. Please come prepared to describe possible project ideas beforehand. In two minute lightening talks, you can present project ideas by briefly introducing a problem and outlining steps of actions. Following the “pitches” we will form teams that will work on the best project ideas, that have been presented.

There is no cost to participating. Sessions will be partly in German, partly in English, depending on the participants.

Please register in advance.
