SPIN2030 Science Festival - Saxon research inspires

More than 50 research institutes and universities represented Saxony's excellent scientific landscape at the Technische Sammlungen Dresden on March 8 and 9, 2024. The first SPIN2030 science festival attracted 8,000 visitors, who were able to experience Saxony's wide-ranging and diverse research live on five floors, try it out and interact directly with the researchers.

The KUZ was on site with the RecyclingDay project at the joint stand of the Saxon Industrial Research Association (SIG). Visitors were able to transform pre-sorted and shredded plastic waste into new objects using their own muscle power on the mobile injection molding machine (HoliPress). Many exciting conversations and curious questions about plastics research and recycling demonstrated the lively interest.

The festival was opened by the Prime Minister of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, and the Saxon Minister of Science, Sebastian Gemkow. The Minister President praised the bright minds from all over the world who drive the Free State and contribute to positive development with new insights, inventiveness and innovation. The opening event was rounded off by an exciting panel discussion with excellent female scientists from Saxony.

Conclusion: The multifaceted Saxon science community inspired numerous inquisitive visitors of all ages on these two days. The large number of interactive offers enabled guests to experience research at first hand and made complex topics understandable. Ideally, easily accessible science events motivate even more bright minds to dedicate themselves to the big questions of our time and help shape the future of research.
