After a break due to the pandemic, the organizers – Konstanz University of Applied Sciences (HTWG), University of Konstanz, Thurgau University of Education (PHTG) and the cities of Konstanz and Kreuzlingen – are happy to be able to invite you to Long Night of Science once again. The slogan for this year’s event is “Inquire!”. Participation in almost all 180 elements of the program is free of charge. There will be a special program for children and families at all four locations, where young researchers can earn the title of Doctor Emeritus on the Long Night of Science. For the first time, a long night will take place on the German and Swiss sides. The free shuttle bus will enable visitors to travel between Bodenseeforum, HTWG, PHTG and the University of Konstanz.

Opening at Lake Constance Forum

Another premiere: For the first time, the Long Night of Science will open centrally at the Bodenseeforum in Konstanz. Starting at 4 pm, the university administration will discuss the topic “University Sites in Konstanz and Kreuzlingen” with city leaders. How do universities and cities benefit from each other? What are your expectations from each other? ». Participation in the panel discussion: Ole Borchardt, Mayor of Constance, Prof. Katharina Holzinger, Dean of the University of Constance, Prof. Dr. d. Sabina Lecher, Mayor of PHTG Kreuzlingen, Thomas Niederberger, Mayor of Kreuzlingen, and Professor Dr. Sabine Rehn, President of HTWG Konstanz.
