Come join us at the "Soapbox Science Rheinland" sommer event 2023

For the forth time in a row, CEPLAS is co-hosting the local event Soapbox Science Rheinland. You are welcome to join us on Augst 5th in Düsseldorf, Schadowplatz and hear 12 engaging science pitches while enjoing your Saturday in the city center.

This year CEPLAS research topics are also very well represented. Six enthusiastic female early career researchers  (Gradschool, postdoc, junior group leader) will participate as speakers and talk about their research projects  for the Shadowplatz-audience. 

Soapbox Science is a public science communication event promoting women and non binary sci‐ entists and the science they do. CEPLAS is supporting the event, as this can be a great opportuni‐ ty for female* researchers to present their research to a broader public and disseminate sciencein an accessible and engaging way. At the same time this is a great platform to increase the visi‐ bility of women and non-binary persons in science and challenge some of the stereotypes andpreconceptions about who is a scientist.

The local event Soapbox Science Rheinland is a collaborative effort between Heine UniversityDüsseldorf and University of Cologne (CEPLAS, CECAD, ML4Q).
