“It is an extremely charming idea to combine science and society at a ball with the intention to connect those spheres to eachother. This shows that science does not feel at home in the ivory tower, but is in the midst of life and celebrates its joys. This ball is a symbol of an open and open-minded society that exchanges and develops in dialogue. This is what a contemporary concept of science stands for, which we want to celebrate with this ball!”
