Once a year, Dresden’s universities, non-university research institutions and science-related companies open their doors to the public. Throughout the city, a wide variety of formats invited visitors to experience science and technology, research and innovation, art and culture up close. From 17:00-00:00, a colorful program of lectures, experiments, guided tours and participatory shows awaited all interested parties. Students, families, senior citizens and of course tomorrow’s young researchers were invited, in short: all night owls who wanted to experience research interactively and expand their own knowledge.

Past Events

The Science Night 2023 took place on 30.06.2023 under the motto “Clever until midnight”. This year, several records were broken: 48,000 visitors (a record for Germany), 52 organisers (more than ever before) and a total of 1,257 events (almost twice as many as last year).
We at CeTI were once again part of this incredible event at the TU Dresden’s auditorium centre. With our interactive demonstrators, such as the surfboard, the intelligent glove and the app HandsOn, we were able to vividly show you results of our research around the tactile internet and robotics.

Our interactive exhibition offered an insight into current digitization research. Visitors could experience modern network communication up close. With our interactive exhibits such as mobile kitchen or digital surfboard, we looked into the future of robotics, virtual reality and tactile internet. Throughout the Science Night 2022, our interactive exhibits, so-called demonstrators, were on display in the Barkhausen Bau. Scientists were in charge of their exhibits and explained the current research findings on digital network communication, AI, 5G, tactile internet or robotics behind them.
