Science World is coming to Frankfurt

Science World, Europe’s Premier Laboratory Experience, is firmly established in Germany with successful events at Düsseldorf in 2015 and Berlin in 2014 + 2016. Building on this success, Science World will be coming to Kap Europa, Frankfurt on 9 May 2017.

Science World is THE place to be for anyone working in or around a laboratory. Anticipated to attract more than 700 visitors and 60 leading industry exhibitors, this is a fantastic opportunity to see thousands of laboratory products in action, have the chance for great networking and attend industry leading technical seminars.

“Science World Frankfurt enables a broad overview on up to date Lab Processes, Products, Applications and key Scientific topics – from end-users for end-users. Frankfurt stands for Internationality. The region for worldwide leading Research, innovative Companies and Institutions. 18 Noble Price winners alone in the fields of Medicine, Physics and Chemistry came from the Goethe-Universität”.

Michael Kugler, Regional Sales Manager West, Germany

"Join us at Kap Europa, the first congress centre in the world to be awarded a platinum certificate by the German Sustainable Building Council!”

The Kap Europa conference centre is situated in the heart of Frankfurt am Main. Frankfurt’s main train station is only a 10 minute walk away. A tube and tram stop are only a 5 minute walk away and from here it is only 5 minutes to Frankfurt’s centre or 2 minutes to the main station.  For those travelling by car there is a multi-storey car park.

Science World Speaker: Ranga Yogeshwar

Having received over 50 awards for his work, Ranga Yogeshwar is one of the best-known science journalists in Germany.

As such, it's extremely exciting that Mr Yogeshwar is the keynote speaker at Science World at Kap Europa, Frankfurt on 9 May. His address entitled "Innovation - Next Exit Future" is expected to be an exciting and thoughtful address for the science community.

Born in 1959 in Luxembourg, Mr Yogeshwar is the son of an Indian engineer and an artist from Luxembourg. He first lived in India, before moving to Luxembourg to attend high school. He then went on to study physics at RWTH Aachen University, focusing his studies on experimental particle physics and astrophysics.

Mr Yogeshwar's early career saw him holding roles at the Swiss Institute for Nuclear Research, CERN in Geneva and at Forschungszentrum Jülich. In 1987 he changed direction by taking a role as an editor for West German radio station in Cologne, managing the group science programme. Since 2008 he has worked as both an independent journalist and an author.

Considered a proactive individual in championing extensive projects, Ranga Yogeshwar has in the past worked in collaboration with MISEREOR, the German Catholic Bishops' Organisation for Development Cooperation to help mine victims in Cambodia.

In addition, Mr Yogeshwar worked extensively to support the tsunami victims in India, as well as co-finding the Children and Youth Foundation, Hennef.

Among many others, Mr Yogeshwar has been awarded the journalist prize for computer science in 2014, the human award for courageous innovators for education, business and science in 2012 and science journalist of the year in 2010 by the Medium Magazine.

Among his many accolades, in 2009 Mr Yogeshwar was also awarded an honorary doctorate in electrical engineering, information technology and media art by the University of Wuppertal.

We look forward to welcoming Mr Yogeshwar to the Science World stage in Frankfurt.

Science World Speaker: Physikanten & Co.

Physikanten & Co will be hitting the stage at Science World at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt on 9 May.

The show promises to amaze and astound, as it educates you on topics which could include anything from electricity, gas, water and fire, to mechanics, climate, engineering and music.

Looking to see a spectacular? Well you are coming to the right place. Watch as there could be a boat floating in air, liquids miraculously changing colour and gherkins exploding. Or see sparks fly from the Tesla Transformer as electricity catapults through the air and experience the magnificent power of music as it creates a stunning show of fire.

Other things you might experience on the day …. You could be in awe of the power of science as you learn how light and flash cotton can make mirrors explode and how the refraction of light can make gel balls seem invisible.

Impressive experiments show you what the atmosphere is made up of, which forms of energy exist and how to exploit them innovatively. See a solar cell being used to play an electric bass and a tornado of fire.

Also, do magnetic shoes really work? Well, we can tell you now that they do! The mind-blowing power of science can see you walking on the ceiling and create explosions like no other.

The interactive performances have won awards across the world, as well as being used to inspire science in schools and universities.

The Physikanten will be a highlight at Science World. Make sure to pre-register today so that you don't miss out on the weird and wonderful performance of a lifetime, making you see science in a new light.
