Taste of Science

It is only with the success of transfers between the specialist expertise of research and the general public that scientific findings are widely perceived, discussed and their relevance becomes visible and effective. In this spirit, the DAI and its cooperation partner SpringerNature will once again be presenting a diverse program on current social issues at Taste of Science: A unique opportunity to engage directly with authors, learn about key positions in societal debates, and add to the conversation with your own questions.
