Science and research require communication among experts of the same discipline and across the disciplines as well as communication with their stakeholders and society. A wide variety of scientific and popular science events prove to be an ideal platform for this purpose. In addition to contact persons and the events calendar you will also find information here about upcoming popular science events and science events, conferences and congresses at the UFZ as well as about the UFZ’s event centre, the Leipzig KUBUS.
