ClientDie Junge Akademie
About the project

Die Junge Akademie was founded in 2000 as the first academy for outstanding young academics. Its members hail from all scientific disciplines and the arts. They explore the potential and limits of interdisciplinary work and aim to start conversations between science, art and society, and to generate momentum in discussions on science policy. The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina are the supporting academies. Since its founding, Die Junge Akademie has developed into a role model and example for similar initiatives in many other countries.

The ten new members of Die Junge Akademie want to explore alternative realities from the angles of different academic disciplines. What spaces of possibility can be opened up with regard to the challenges of our time through alternative configurations of past, present and future? They will explore this and other questions using the concrete example of the space in which we find ourselves, with the means of virtual reality.
