Goals and Functions
Since 2008, the Mainz Science Alliance has represented the breadth and quality of research and technological know-how in and around Mainz. This scientific, economic and social network was founded as a non-profit association at the beginning of June 2013. The objective was to increase networking of the universities, scientific institutions and companies in Mainz and its environs to promote research and science and to thereby strengthen Mainz as a centre of scientific activity. A further objective was to increase the national and international visibility of Mainz as an economic region. The association also has the task of initiating new projects and cooperative ventures among members of the alliance, and of providing a platform for exchange with the scientific community.
Event Formats: the Mainz Science Market (held annually), the Profile Talks of the Mainz Science Alliance (1-2 times a year; sometimes open to the public), the People of Science – Makers of Knowledge theme years: "Mensch der Wisssenschafft“ (2015: People of Science in Dialogue, 2016: People of Medicine, 2017: People of the Environment)
