Wissenschaftsladen Bonn (Bonn Science Shop)

Established in 1984 as a registered non-profit organisation the Bonn Science Shop wants to reduce the chasm between university & citizens. The overall mission of Science Shops is to: widen the access to existing scientific knowledge; contribute to the awareness of the impact of science in society; train students and young scientists to undertake community based research; and communicate knowledge to lay people. The work of the Bonn Science Shop gives special emphasis to the topics of civil society & sustainability, environment & health, as well as the labour market. Here, experts provide information not only in one-on-one consultations, through on-location measurements, press-releases, information brochures, & lectures but also in professional-enhancement training.

When appropriate, the Bonn Science Shop co-operates with other Science Shops in Germany or on an international level in the Living Knowledge Network (www.livingknowledge.org) to enable multidisciplinary research, dissemination of results and education. The Bonn Science Shop has a 25 persons staff and is one of the Science Shops that has been involved, from the very beginning, in the EU-supported projects SCIPAS (Study & Conference on Improving Public Access to Science through Science Shops), ISSNET (Improving Science Shop Networking) and TRAMS (Training and Mentoring of Science Shops).
