(What format suits your session? Details on the different formats can be found on www.forum-wissenschaftskommunikation.de. Please take the instructions into account.)

Target audience*

(Who should attend this session? Is it desirable for attendees to have any specific prior knowledge?)

Title of session: *

(Please enter a concise title. If your proposed session is selected, this title will be used for the online and print programmes for the event.)


Short description of session: *

(Please describe the content of your session in an abstract of max. 1500 characters. What are the objectives? Which key question will you address? If you are proposing an interactive format, please indicate the method/format, e.g. World Café or workshop, and maximum number of participants.)

Further information for sessions with multiple speakers and moderators

(Only required for panel discussions or interactive workshops with multiple speakers or moderators.)

A panel discussion runs for 75 minutes and includes impulse statements by a maximum of three speakers followed by a discussion of at least 45 minutes.
If you submit a panel discussion, please indicate all planned speakers. These should have different areas of expertise or come from different institutions and hold differing views.
If you submit an interactive format with multiple organisers, please name all of them.
The moderator should not be directly involved in the project being presented. The moderator must have a good overview of the theme and work with the speakers before the event to plan the questions. The moderator should give a short introduction to stimulate the debate, motivate the audience to participate and, importantly, ensure that the speakers adhere to the allotted time limits. This guarantees that each speaker gets a chance to present and that enough time remains for questions and discussion.


The session will be moderated by:


This proposal involves speakers who will provide a short impulse statement.

Speaker  1


Speaker  2


Speaker  3
