“Before coming to Vienna, I had never heard about balls that are arranged to celebrate science. What a wonderful idea! Gathering scientists, people from industry and politicians for such an event and at such a beautiful location can – besides bringing lots of joy – foster new connections and further promote Austrian research and education. Vienna has certainly much to offer to those curious in mind and those, who simply like to enjoy life. Let’s be both! I am very much looking forward to this year’s Vienna Ball of Sciences, and hope to learn how to waltz just in time.”
