BRIDGE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND SOCIETY // EFFECTS OF DDc IN THE CITY AND SOCIETY
Science means responsibility. In addition to its inward activities, DRESDEN-concept also works through its partners towards the outside world and into the city and society. In addition to cooperation with schools, it is important to all participants to make the results of their research publicly known and to transfer the knowledge into society.
The citizens can also profit directly from the top research of DRESDEN-concept partners, for example by testing intelligent traffic control systems or future-oriented developments in the field of electromobility at the Dresden public transport companies.
By means of an interactive science exhibition (until 2019) and a designed tram that travels through the city area, the Research Alliance informs Dresdeners and visitors to the city about current research results and the diversity of the science institutions. The annual Museum Night and the Long Night of Science are the two lighthouses of activities in the city. All DRESDEN-concept partners participate in these events.
In addition, the Research Alliance promotes scholarships and directly supports student involvement in the society.
