Organise events at Think Corner

Think Corner is a place for science and research-based events. It brings scientific knowledge into people's everyday lives by addressing scientific themes and topical issues through events and online. It produces programme content and hosts scientific events.

Think Corner as a venue

Think Corner is a street-level arena for the popularisation of science, designed to be accessible, open and relaxed. Let's cut out the unnecessary formalities, lecturing and formality. The best debates come from the clash of different perspectives. Keeping events interesting and boldly raising issues.

  • Events at Think Corner should have a clear link to research and science.
  • Events should reach a wide audience and their content should be accessible to all.
  • Events should be organised in time slots of no more than two hours. Short formats and condensed content are more likely to reach large audiences and stakeholders.
  • Think Corner's event spaces are open to the public and the programme organised in the space is accessible to all. It is important for event organisers to consider whether the openness and free participation of the facilities will benefit the objectives of the event or hinder its implementation.
