Einblick in das Forum der experimenta

Help shape the world

You can create change. How? Find out in our Forum. Support research, discover the city of the future, share your opinion and deepen your knowledge.

Inform, discuss, and engage – take part in our Forum. Here, current research findings encounter the question of how we actually want to live today and in the future. Use the interactive stations to learn more about current developments in science and technology.

Find out how you can contribute to research as a citizen scientist. Put your ideas up for discussion and exchange them with others – for example on the subjects in our regularly changing focus exhibitions.

There are also frequent events at the Forum. Just stop by!
