“Within the last years, Vienna consistently showed its leading position in international rankings on liveability and sustainability. Innovative, smart and sustainable – these are Vienna’s slogans. The Science ball also fulfils these claims: launched in 2015, the ball strives for celebrating and conveying science. And it of course will have a sustainable impact, when on January 28, 2017 again around 2800 guests waltz in Vienna’s town hall. The Science ball impressively shows, that our city is an attractive spot for research with enormous scientific energy, ensuring Vienna’s lead as a ‘smart’ city.”
