For the first time, the City of Vienna stages the Vienna Science Ball. On Saturday, 31 January 2015, Vienna’s City Hall will be turned into a festive venue for the city’s science, research and university community. In a city renown for its 450 spectacular events in carnival the Vienna Science Ball adds a distinct sensation of entertainment with an attitude to the annual ball season. Tickets (discounted for students) are on sale here: http://www.wissenschaftsball.at/shop/

The Vienna Science Ball represents Vienna’s science and research community in its excellence and diversity. Typical elements of a Viennese Ball are combined with contributions from Vienna’s universities. International visibility and recognition are secured through the presence of global stars of popular science communication like Marc Abrahams, editor and co-founder of Annals of Improbable Research, and originator and emcee of the annual Ig Nobel Prize celebration.

The Vienna Ball of Science has three messages: Science in Vienna is

… large and diverse: 215’000 students and researchers (= 12.5% of pop.) at 20 public and private universities plus research institutes, museums and funding agencies.

… excellent in terms of research and training: world-class science in quantum physics, computer science, molecular biology, logic, history, etc. For example, 80 out of 110 ERC grantees in Austria do their research in the Vienna area.

… international: the largest university location in central Europe hosts scientists from more than 100 nations. 27% of the students are from abroad.

Which brings me to another intention of the ball: in the past years right-wing fraternities (“Burschenschaften”) affiliated with the local Freedom Party (best described as hybrid of UKIP and National Front) have set up a so-called “Academia ball” in the former Imperial Palace. Our ball, the Science Ball in the Vienna Town Hall, was initiated by the Mayor of Vienna  and the rectors of the Viennese universities wanting to send a signal and make clear that the scientists, researchers, teachers, students and university workers represent academia, not the right-wing fraternities.


Come and join the scientifically approved fun!
