SILBERSALZ 2019 - Conference
22.06 - 23.06, Halle (Saale)
The two-day SILBERSALZ Conference is a closed format consisting of lectures, panel discussions, a science and media pitch as well as keynotes given by experts at the German National Academy of Sciences, the Leopoldina.
Here, scientists and media professionals have the opportunity to discuss the latest developments in science and media communication, share their insights and make new connections.
In 2019, a hand-picked line-up of scientific minds, researchers and thinkers were guiding an interdisciplinary audience through the surprises and controversies behind the theme "The Science of Love”. Bringing together new influential approaches across neuroscience, philosophy, evolutionary biology, sociology, history, psychology as well as narrative media and technology to unlock the secrets of love, the conference explores how scientists and storytellers can collaborate to create science programming that fascinates global audiences.
