Access to research results should be made available to the general public. We believe that research only makes sense when it is for the benefit of people and nature. Our ongoing goal is to convert complex scientific language into understandable lectures, projects, and exhibitions which provide people with an opportunity to voice their questions, and to lead mutually beneficent discussions with scientists.
Important: We have no capacity for volunteers, Bachelor or Master students in 2020
