Munich Local Organising Team

Soapbox Science Munich

After hosting their first and very successful Soapbox Science event in 2018, the Munich team is eager and already looking forward to continue sharing science with the public! Last year, the event reached a whopping 1368 people who visited their event at Odeonsplatz. With its many research institutes and universities, Munich is a true hub for science. Despite this,  the proportion of female professors in Bavaria is less than 20% and the lowest in Germany . We want to encourage and  utilise the power of strong female scientists to educate and inspire the public about science.

The organizers are a team of scientists from different nationalities living in Munich, where we study a range of topics within life sciences. We organise this event to fulfill our common goals: make science available for people of all backgrounds and ages, and empower future female scientists. If you would be interested in developing a talk with us and delivering it to the streets of Munich, please don’t hesitate to apply!
