Welcome to the 5th Vienna Ball of Sciences on Saturday, 26 January 2019.

“We’re about diversity, openness and excellence.”
New York Times, 6 February 2018

“Thank you, again, for inviting me to this marvelous experience. It was surreal and lovely and one of the most memorable things to come out of my time at MFS. I can say with absolutely no authority that it was the best ball this season.”
Caroline Weinberg, co-chair “March for Science”, 31 January 2018

“The coolest ball of the season”
woman.at, 12 January 2016

The “science ball promotes diversity, reaching out to students and researchers from all academic disciplines and institutions. (A) clever attempt to associate a big city’s science base with its most distinguished cultural characteristics. And the sold-out event was ample proof that the organizers had hit a nerve.“
Nature, 3 February 2017

“Wiens universitet dansar för vetenskapens värden” – “Vienna’s universities dance for scientific values.”
Dagens Nyheter, 4 February 2018

“I truly recommend it as a ball to visit in Vienna: it is the perfect mix of formality and fun and, of course, innovation and science stuff.”
Tova Marr in “Operation Tubetop”, 30 January 2017
