Places of dialogue


The eight Leibniz research museums in Germany are outstanding places for communicating the relevance of the latest scientific findings and current challenges and placing them in a historical context. Within the framework of a joint action plan financed by the Federal Government and the Länder, they aim to achieve joint visibility through innovative forms of knowledge transfer.

The series of events "Places of Dialogue" offers actors from science, politics and the public a forum for discussing socially relevant topics such as climate change, the management of our natural and cultural heritage, the loss of biodiversity, energy system transformation or structural change. The presentation of historical contexts and future effects of these topics can be examined differently by the individual research museums and thus addressed comprehensively.

The events are given a special character by the respective research competence of the research museums as well as by the concrete reference to individual or several museum objects. For example, the special exhibition "energie.wenden" at the Deutsches Museum in Munich discusses energy system transformation in Germany and France. In Bremerhaven, the 150th anniversary of polar research was celebrated on 24 May 2018 on the Nordic Jagt Greenland, the ship of the First German Polar Expedition. On this occasion, the influence of the local research institutes on urban development was discussed on the active museum ship of the German Maritime Museum with institute directors*, urban developers* and politicians*.

By bringing different social and interest groups into dialogue with each other, the research museums also literally become places of dialogue and an indispensable interface between science and society, which should enable opinion-forming.

Leibniz research museums explore change and shape the future. Accompany us.
