Who Owns Science? Bayer Foundation at Berlin Science Week 2021
On November 5th & 6th 2021, we were really happy to be part of a memorable Berlin Science Week hosted by Falling Walls Foundation in which we got to interact with the general public, meet our fantastic partners, and host a really insightful panel discussion on Who Owns Science?
Thank you for many incredible days at the Berlin Science Week. Besides our booth and our panel on "Who owns Science?" we had many great days and exciting conversations. Thanks to all who visited us or followed the livestream!
Bayer Foundation are really excited to be participating in person and online at this year’s Berlin Science Week hosted by Falling Walls. Come and meet the team and partners at our stand, or join our panel discussion on the relationship between science and society from our fantastic participants: Who Owns Science? Our Executive Director, Monika Lessl, is also a panelist alongside Tatjana König and Simone Menne on the topic of “Promoting Gender Equality for Innovation”.
Every year, the Bayer Foundation’s Science@School program provides up to EUR300,000 of funding for school projects that can help children see science and research in a whole new light. In this interview, Anna Gerliz, a general studies teacher at Overath Elementary School near Cologne, talks about her microscopy project. It was selected to receive funding in 2020.
