Falling Walls Engage is a worldwide platform for breakthroughs in science engagement. The project seeks to spread scientific literacy, especially among broader non-expert audiences. It also fosters co-learning among science communicators, helping them transfer the importance of and enthusiasm for science into society.

The programme culminates in a fast-paced annual pitch competition. Here innovative projects from a wide range of fields compete for the “Falling Walls Science Engagement of the Year” award.

Falling Walls Engage asks organisations and individuals active in science engagement to submit their successful projects or initiatives. The international call is open to all forms of science engagement. We are looking for impactful, cost-effective and novel approaches to building opportunities for dialogue and participation.

The best submissions will be invited to share their science engagement projects on 8 November 2020. This will be in a fast-paced pitch competition in front of a peer audience and a distinguished jury.

The winner of “Falling Walls Science Engagement of the Year” gets the chance to pitch their project on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference. This is to an audience of 750 global leaders, decision-makers and international media representatives.

All participating projects will be documented on an interactive learning website to inspire other professionals and the public. Following the presentation pitches, co-learning workshops will create an opportunity for further discussion, exchange of expertise and cooperation.


Falling Walls Engage Hub

Falling Walls Engage is a platform for science engagement initiatives. These cover a wide range of cultural and regional backgrounds, each with their respective challenges and framework conditions.

Together with international partners, we build independent networks worldwide. The Falling Walls Engage Hubs connect the local and regional scientific community and administrative bodies with international science engagement initiatives and the global Falling Walls community.
