To mark its fiftieth anniversary, the Austrian Science Fund, together with partners from science and research, transformed 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 offered the chance to discover top-class research, to participate and have a say.
