“BNetzA meets science” is an open and interdisciplinary dialogue and networking event that also has an intergenerational component, linking young academics with their more experienced colleagues. Participants include researchers from universities, think tanks and NGOs and span from students to professors.
The core areas of “BNetzA meets Science” include Technology & Engineering, Communication Science and Economics and Landscape. Issues connected with these topics are discussed through informal exchanges as well as dedicated brainstorming sessions and subject-specific workshops. A panel discussion constitutes the final segment of the event. During the two-day event, interested stakeholders who are not able to join in person have the opportunity to follow the discussion live via Twitter. The outcomes of “BNetzA meets Science” are also documented in detail on the BNetzA website and in a proceedings document.
