Our summer trip 2019 to Potsdam


Soup & Science: About the beauty of mould


On 20th of August, Vera Meyer talked about the beauty and usefulness of mould at the Soup & Science programm featured by Inforadio (rbb) and the Technologiestiftung Berlin. The conversation was broadcasted on 25th of August 2019 at 9:45 am and 1:45 pm. Just klick on the photo to hear the podcast or watch the teaser in our menu "Research" (it is in German, though).

Exhibition of the current greenlab project at Kunsthochschule Weißensee


In the course of the open house presentation on 6th and 7th of July 2019, interested people could visit the Kunsthochschule Weißensee to take a look at the current greenlab projects. Some of these projects were performed in collaboration with our biotechnology students and were supervised by our department.




Long Night of Science 2019


The Long Night of Science on 15th of June 2019 was a full success! More than 808 visitors came to the house of biotechnology and process engineering, surpassing all expectations. With this result, we are ranked among the top 10 of the TU Berlin!

Art exhibition at our department


Many of us are not only fond of science, but also fond of arts!

From May 13th until July 12th 2019, our department shows selected art pieces made by Charlotte Steiniger and Bertram Schmidt - two postdocs of our group - to celebrate the interplay of science and art.

Vernissage: Mo, May 13th 2019, 6 - 9 pm

2016 & 2017

Former Science Slams about our research

  • 27.04.2016 25-jährige Jubiläum IHO, Hamburg
  • 17.05.2016 Messe Labvolution/Biotechnica, Hannover
  • 19.05.2016 Heimathafen Neukölln, Berlin
  • 16.06.2016 Messe IdeenExpo, Hannover (Finale) http://www.ideenexpo.de/​
  • 24.06.2017 Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften TU Audimax


Corrado, scientist in our Department, won the 13. Zürcher Science Slam in November 2016 (see the pics for some impression of the evening). The winner was decided among eight participants by the audience of around 400 guests by plebiscite, as commonly due in science slams. Science slams are a unique occasion to bring a “hard” scientific topic to a broader audience during an informal “participative” evening (usually in a club) in an entertaining way. For more information about the science-communication format, please follow the article recently published in the open access journal Fungal Biology and Biotechnology (“Let microorganisms do the talking, let us talk more about microorganisms”).
