The conference took place in Münster at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU), a stone's throw away from the research centre. Participants, however; came from all of Germany to attend this inspiring event. In the lobby, during the poster session with the topic "market of opportunities", the first interesting interactions emerged. Matthias Graf von Kielmansegg (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) engaged in an open conversation on science-society research and practice.
The day concluded with a workshop on challenges in science with and for society, aiming to come to drivers and solutions for citizen science in general. The workshop was moderated by researchers from the research centre and transfer managers from TAFH Münster GmbH. The participants all actively engaged, reflected, and provided criticism on practice. Thereafter, the moderators led the participants in the direction of solutions or tools to improve future science-society-interaction providing everyone with a positive outlook.
