Public Events

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf regularly organizes popular science events that offer an ideal platform for dialog between science and society. In the various event formats, our researchers provide interesting insights into the three research areas of energy, health and matter.

On this page you will find information on current and past events of the HZDR.



Dresden Science Night

The 21st Dresden Long Night of Science will take place on June 14, 2024. This year, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) will once again present a diverse program of lectures, interactive exhibits and guided tours at the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden. In addition, HZDR research can be experienced in the "Felsenkeller" underground laboratory.



"Dresden is(s)t bunt" (Dresden´s colorful diversity banquet)

The annual banquet "Dresden is(s)t bunt" brought together thousands of people to share dishes from around the world and chat and discuss in a cheerful atmosphere. This year, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) was a part of this vibrant event for the first time, joining many other institutions from politics, business, science, and culture.

Dresden Science Night

Under the motto "3, 2, 1 ... SCIENCE!", around 100 scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) presented their research projects to a wide audience. Thematically, the program exemplified the HZDR's research spectrum in the fields of energy, health and matter. In order to inspire even the youngest audience for science, the HZDR offered many experiments for children.

oha! Abenteuer Wissenschaft // Görlitz and Zittau

At the first oha! Abenteuer Wissenschaft, many visitors were able to explore the fascinating world of data and algorithms at CASUS. The program included, for example, walk-through 3D visualizations of atoms, an excursion into the world of animal migration, and a Picasso painting of Görlitz "painted" by an artificial intelligence.
