“The Vienna Ball of Sciences combines several wonderful things: science, research and the fun of a ball night. Since its first edition the ball has established itself as an important counter event to the Akademikerball and is therefore contributing to science not being pocketed by far-right poltics.
Together we can make sure that right-wing fraternities, right extremists and other nationalists will never again gain the upper hand over science and society. Let us dance, especially against those who repeatedly want to spread their hate in the Hofburg!”
