The 5th edition of the SILBERSALZ Science & Media Forum is taking place on 17-18 June 2022 at the Leopoldina – National Academy of Sciences, in Halle (Saale), Germany.
Designed as an exclusive space for interdisciplinary exchange and fundraising, the Forum aims to ignite new collaborations between scientists, science journalists, communicators and media creators to boost the production of creative factual formats, documentaries and immersive experiences on all media platforms.
This year's edition focuses on “Changing Perspectives”, as an imperative of our time in redefining our roles as science media professionals. The 2- days programme of the FORUM reflects on this theme, through inspiring keynotes and talks and is topped-off with the SILBERSALZ Science & Media Pitch. Here you will be meeting a selection of inspiring international factual projects ranging from documentaries to immersive concepts, in development or early production as well as scientists presenting newest scientific discoveries with great potential to be transformed into powerful stories for global audiences.
The first confirmed speakers are:
Prof Dr Maja Göpel, Political Economist & Transformation Researcher
