Frankfurt. July 2023. science. communicated!


...why should you join?

In many current debates it is becoming increasingly difficult for science to make its voice heard. In times of so-called „alternative facts“ scientific results are sometimes even deliberately ignored or manipulated to gain advantages.

In the future, this social debate will become increasingly stronger and probably also more aggressive.
Many researchers are consciously withdrawing more and more from this discussion. There are certainly many reasons for this, but it ultimately leads to the debate being conducted less and less with empirically verifiable data and more emotionally charged, irrational and interest-driven in the long term.

The withdrawal of scientists from the discourse is largely due to a lack of time, knowledge and structures.

SCI-COM-E brings together scientists, communicators and experts in adjacent fields –  sharing experiences, learning from each other and building a lasting network. 



The program starts on July 19 and ends July 21, 2023.


The meeting is intended for scientists and science communicators who want to get new insights, meet fascinating people and build a network in science communication.


SCI-COM-E will take place at the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany.

How much?

The event is supported by the Joachim Herz Stiftung and Goethe University Frankfurt. Thus we can offer tickets at reduced prices.

Sci-COm-E: Network

 The workshop SCI-COM-E brings together people from all over the world to discuss science communication, share ideas and build lasting networks. Thus the topic of 2023 – NETWORK.


If you are interested in contributing to the meeting, please let us know via e-mail to Since we do not want to have a plethora of talks attached to one another, but rather dynamic and meaningful discussion, we most likely can fit in additional contributions.

The individual sessions are currently being planned by the hosts, the preliminary program including time schedule can be downloaded here: 

The sessions include: 

  • Science Communication and Artificial Intelligence

  • Handling media for scientists

  • Humor in science communication

  • Science and Art

  • Communicating errors in science

  • Creating lasting networks in science communication

  • Project presentations

SCI-COM-E is supported by the Joachim Herz Foundation.

Thus we will be able to give out scholarships for young science communicators. Travel and accommodation will be supported.

Application for these scholarships is possible for students only and the scholarships are awarded as a lump sum. For more details please refer to the ES3C site.

In addition we can support the event in general and make it cheaper for everyone to attend. 


To make things a bit easier on the backend, we use eventbrite for registration.
