Shaping the Future now! Falling Walls Engage Pitches


Opening Remarks by Isabella Kessel – Project Manager, Science and Research / Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Followed by 5-min pitches and 1-min Q&A from the audience.

Falling Walls Engage is an international platform for all forms of science engagement, hosted by Falling Walls in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung. Its goal is to showcase successful science engagement projects from a wide range of fields. From public science to pub science, from kindergarten education to VR experiences, and from citizen science to journalism, Falling Walls Engage connects those who tear down the walls between science and the public. The program seeks to highlight the scientific community’s responsibility for the common good and spread scientific literacy, with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups.
