The COSMO is a meeting-place for society and research. Both society and research are more than ever dependent on each other: Science helps to understand the world based on facts and without prejudice. It answers questions and provides insights that can contribute to social progress, innovations, and better living conditions for all. But what is science without people who understand and trust it? How can research provide answers to society if it does not know its questions?
The Science Forum provides a space that promotes exchange between science and society. Here, various fields of science and current research can be experienced live and hands-on and be critically discussed in different event formats.
The space is operated jointly by the Barkhausen Institut and the Department for Speculative Transformation at TU Dresden in cooperation with partners from the Dresden Science Alliance DRESDEN-concept, the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra and the Central Library.
