Einstein-Circle "Science and Culture"


Berlin offers a unique environment for conducting research on multiple aspects of natural sciences and humanities from physics to social sciences and design. The Einstein Circle “Science & Culture” aims to dissolve the border between the material and the virtual that separates humanities and natural sciences for creating a common field in human and material sciences through the design of new objects and practices of interdisciplinary research. This research field connecting science and culture will also include medicine, human-centred computing, data sciences, biomaterial sciences and engineering, architecture, history of arts and sciences, and product design. An additional goal is to provide an essential interdisciplinary experience to disciplinary experts in order to reach a higher societal impact of their work. In dialogue with international experts, the Einstein Circle will develop a specific curriculum for interdisciplinary “Learning with, from, and about each other” and prepare an application for an Einstein Centre “Science & Culture” with a training, networking, and mentoring programme for postdoctoral researchers from different disciplines.
