BE OPEN - Science & Society Festival

 

Curtain up for top research from Austria

To mark its fiftieth anniversary, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), together with partners from science and research, is transforming Vienna’s Maria-Theresien-Platz into a garden of curiosity and fascination.
Under the patronage of Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen and as part of the Austrian EU Council presidency, the “BE OPEN – Science & Society Festival” from 8 to 12 September 2018 offers the chance to discover top-class research, to participate and have a say.

START and WITTGENSTEIN award

At the end of the festival, on 12 September 2018, Austria’s most prestigious scientific awards, the Wittgenstein Prize and the Start Prizes, will be presented to excellent scientists. Look forward to a varied and entertaining evening celebrating outstanding scientific achievements.

Celebrate fifty years of top research in Austria with us – we look forward to your visit!
