In Brief

About the project

The Berlin School of Public Engagement and Open Science is a collaborative project between Berlin’s Natural History Museum, Berlin-based Humboldt University, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung. It is part of the newly created Science Campus for Nature and Society in Berlin, which aims to provide a publicly visible place to invent, test, and advance new practices of sharing between science and society. The Berlin School helps to open up science and to communicate processes and findings of scientific work in an innovative, interactive, and target group-oriented way. To this end, the project designs and develops continuing education modules on public engagement and open science for researchers at all career levels at scientific institutions in Germany. In addition, numerous practical modules are intended to create incentives and opportunities for scientists to participate in public engagement activities and enter into a dialogue with the public. The Robert Bosch Stiftung is supporting the establishment of the Berlin School with the aim of making it a permanent institution of the partners involved and setting new standards for opening up science to society.
