Silbersalz Conference: Free Accreditations for EDN Members


On the occasion of the very first edition of Silbersalz International Science and Media Festival, EDN members are eligible for a free accreditation for the international Silbersalz Conference, talking place alongside the festival. The number of free accreditations is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Silbersalz International Science and Media Festival will take place from 28 June to 1st July 2018 in Halle (Saale), Germany’s hub for scientific research and education. The festival is initiated by Documentary Campus and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

EDN is partnering with Silbersalz and exclusively offers its members up to 20 free accreditations to the international Silbersalz Conference which takes place as part of the festival on June 30th and July 1st at the Leopoldina German National Academy of Sciences. The Silbersalz Conference brings international scientists and media professionals together to explore storytelling at the frontline of research and technology changing what it means to be human.

Through the lens of the festival theme Cyborgs: Human & Machines, the program explores stories of revolutionary prosthetics, gene-editing and brain-computer interface as striking examples of the challenges and opportunities that science communication faces on the whole. As a highlight, the Silbersalz Pitch offers a platform to international scientists, presenting their latest research to the attending guests.

Attending the conference are international broadcasters including arte, VICE, ZDF, Wellcome, Simons Foundation, international top and junior scientists as well as representatives of the Helmholtz Association, the Leibniz Association, the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, the Max Planck Society, and the German Research Foundation.
