The IRI THESys Science Engagement project AnthropoScenes and its coordinator Pauline Münch have been selected as a Falling Walls Engage Finalist! Well done!

Outstanding Science Engagement

Every year since 2018, the Falling Walls platform has been calling organisations and individuals active in Science Engagement to submit their projects or initiatives. This year, the IRI THESys project AnthropoScenes coordinated by Pauline Münch has been selected out of 136 applications to be among the 30 finalists!

All finalists will now move on to the next round, in which the 20 winning projects will be awarded at the beginning of August. The winners will be invited to pitch their project on stage in Berlin and be in the running to become the Falling Walls Science Breakthrough of the Year 2024 in the category Science Engagement.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for AnthropoScences!

About AnthropoScenes

AnthropoScenes connects theatre and science—with water in the spotlight. On stages in Berlin and markets in Brandenburg, artists and researchers experiment with different audiences to debate and develop sustainable water futures. The aim is open dialogues across all corners of the region and integrate these conversations, stories and ideas into further artistic and scientific works. It is embedded within Climate and Water Under Change (CliWaC), an inter and transdisciplinary research consortium studying the effects of climate change on water in Berlin-Brandenburg. Working closely with CliWaC scientists, AnthropoScenes also partners with artists across the region to bring song, literature, poetry to the stage and beyond. It is funded as an Experimental Laboratory by the framework of the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State government by the Berlin University Alliance, AnthropoScenes will run from 2021 until 2024.

Save the date

The Falling Walls Science Summit 2024 is set to take place from 7 – 9 November 2024 in Berlin.
