Join the SILBERSALZ Online Conference „The Two Faces of Trust” – register now for your free access

Dear Members of EURASF,

On behalf of Documentary Campus and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, we are delighted to invite you to the very first digital conference edition of the SILBERSALZ Science & Media Festival which takes now place online on 17 October 2020 from 9:30–13:30 CET.

This year the Conference will explore science and media as the two faces of trust. We are bringing international scientists and media professionals together - to tackle rebuilding public trust as a common challenge for both contemporary science and media. New forms of co-creation across science and media will be crucial as societies face the dual challenge of accelerating climate change and democratic backsliding.

The program will be live-streamed from Leopoldina, German National Academy of Sciences – with our headlining speakers and a limited number of guests on location. On our virtual conference platform, we create a space for crucial interdisciplinary collaboration and offer various networking possibilities for all participants.

Our keynote speakers

We are thrilled to welcome as experts: Climatologist and German National Academy of Sciences President Prof. (ETHZ) Dr. Gerald Haug, renowned marine biologist Prof. Dr. Antje Boetius, leading science historian Dr. Jürgen Renn, outspoken activist researcher and journalist Hossein Derakhshan, and Dr. Jeanine Reutemann, an undisciplined researcher, filmmaker, lecturer, and tech-nerd as well as bestselling science fiction novelist Frank Schätzing.
