What is the Science Camp?

The Science Camp is an interdisciplinary exchange and networking platform. In an informal and intimate atmosphere, scientists from all disciplines/joint projects at the University of Rostock and the affiliated institutes present their own research topics during the popular poster session, openly offer other scientists potential synergies for active networking and cooperation and keep an eye out for existing and new contacts. The Science Camp is an important point of orientation for young scientists and offers representatives of the state government and industry an opportunity to gain an overview of the status of current research projects.

Meeting up, getting to know each other, finding out information and exchanging ideas - that is the focus of the event.

You will be surprised at how diverse and forward-looking the research at the University of Rostock is. You will be impressed by the interplay between research and business at the almost 600-year-old University of Rostock.

We cordially invite you!

Who is the Science Camp for?

In short: For all those interested in research who feel addressed.

Scientists from the University of Rostock and the affiliated institutes are cordially invited to present their research topics in the poster session or the science slam.

Visitors are very welcome.

At the Sience Camp, there will be the opportunity to exchange ideas at the information stands of players from the fields of promoting young researchers, research funding, start-ups and other institutions.

What does the programme look like?

The central feature of the event is the traditional poster session, in which academics from all faculties and affiliated institutes can present their research topic/project.

At information stands, they will have the opportunity to talk to contact persons from the University of Rostock's research service and transfer stakeholders.

The Science Camp continues to develop every year. In the past, the programme has been expanded to include events such as a science slam, photo competition, panel discussion and the presentation of film contributions.

Why is a visit worthwhile for you?

As a researcher, you will have the opportunity to talk to colleagues about research topics/projects in a relaxed atmosphere. Familiarise yourself with the university's support facilities.

As a doctoral candidate, you will have the opportunity to present your research topic, find out about the practical aspects of a career in science and discuss your research work with academics at all career stages.

As a curious visitor interested in research, the Science Camp gives you an insight into the research landscape of the presenting institutions and gives you the opportunity to talk directly to scientists.



Registration is expected to open at the beginning of June 2024.
