Aktuelle Veranstaltungen

Dear Humboldtians,


on behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to the Salon on September 17th. Since it is still not possible to have a "regular" Salon at the IBZ with social interactions, we will stick with the virtual format. Lutz Cleemann, the president of the DGH, will give a talk on


“Corona: Die Stunde der Wissenschaft”


During the last months, more than 15 million people followed the podcast of Christian Drosten, a virologist from the Charité in Berlin, to learn abstract scientific details about the Corona virus like reproduction rates, infection probabilities and ratio of population versus infections and deaths rates.

This broad interest in science is much in contrast to the observation before the Corona crisis, that not more than 13% of the German people fully trust science.

Obviously, the Corona-Crisis not only changed rather dramatically our personal and social life. Within a few months the threat of Corona also turned the attitude of the Germans towards science in general in a rather remarkable way.

The „Institut für Demoskopie Allensbach (IfD Allensbach)“ investigated this unexpected trend systematically. In his talk, Lutz Cleemann, will present this representative Allensbach survey published first in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung from July 2020.


Dedicated to science and research this issue might be of particular interest for all Humboldtians.

The presentation will be given in German.
