50th Anniversary of Ulm University and Science Night

On Friday 21 July 2017, Ulm University celebrates its 50th anniversary with tributes, a ceremonial act and the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaft (Science Night). The programme begins at 10:00 a.m. with several prize-givings. The centrepiece of the public ceremonial act (2:00 p.m.) is the speech held by EU Commissioner for Budget and Human Resources, Günther Oettinger.

The Science Night kicks off from 4 p.m. onward with presentations, guided tours and workshops on campus. All faculties and many institutions have compiled a varied programme. Until midnight visitors can inspect a walk-in heart or marvel at a self-driving test car. On offer are furthermore physics shows, a guided tour through the 'Underworld of Ulm University' and numerous presentations, for example on the chemistry of beer.

In the Botanical Garden the University Sailing Club with their catamaran, beach bar and Shanty Choir will take visitors into the world of Caribbean. Inclusive and hands-on activities, for example as offered by the Centre for the Arts (MUZ), and of course a children's programme round off the experience.
