Long Night of Science 2022
July 8, 2022

On July 8th after 5pm we will have in Dresden the Long Night of Science!

Once a year, Dresden's universities, non-university research institutions and science-related companies open their doors to the public. Throughout the city, a wide variety of formats invite visitors to experience science and technology, research and innovation, art and culture up close. From 17:00-00:00, a colourful programme of lectures, experiments, guided tours and participatory shows awaits all those interested. Students, families, senior citizens and, of course, the little researchers of tomorrow are invited, in short: all night owls who want to experience research interactively and expand their own knowledge.

You can find us at the HAL building of TU Dresden from 6pm till 10pm:


Our offer includes:

Always follow your nose! Cocktail Lounge:
Our (alcohol-free) cocktail lounge in the garden of the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology invites you to enjoy cold drinks on comfortable deck chairs. You are a little bit experimental? Then build your cocktail - not by ingredient, but by the smells of the ingredients!

Always follow your nose! The Long Night of Smelling:
At the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology, this year's Long Night of Science will be the Long Night of (Digital) Smelling! From mixing cocktails by smell to curious facts about the sense of smell and the tricky smell memory to coffee recognition by digital smell sensors, we offer an exciting program for young and old to puzzle, learn and participate(/smell).

Always follow your nose! The great smelling memory:
Everyone can do memory by the picture! Here comes a new challenge: In this memory game, the matching smells must be found. A challenge for young and old!

Always follow your nose! Talk: Digitization of Olfaction:
Our five senses enable us to perceive and interact with our environment. We have long since become accustomed to the fact that technology can also interpret stimuli from the environment: Our smartphone can recognise faces or a cat in photos, react to touch and interpret speech input. So technical devices can SEE, FEEL and HEAR. But why not actually SMELL? This and much more is what you will learn in this talk!

Always follow your nose! Talk: Electrifying mobility:
Batteries mean freedom and comfort. What would we have to do without in our everyday lives if they didn't exist? This and much more will be the subject of this exciting video.

Always follow your nose! Want to get a SMELL of psychology?:
How well can I actually smell? And what does this molecule smell like? Find out how good your smelling skills are and help us advance our research while you're at it! We need YOUR opinion - what do these samples smell like? In the end, we want to create a big database of olfactory perception! Of course, there's a small reward for everyone and the chance to take part in our great lottery!

Always follow your nose! Coffee identification using nanosensors:
The sense of smell is a highly complex process that has not yet been digitised. The ability to extract valuable information from smells and gases can potentially revolutionise various fields such as industrial safety, healthcare and the food industry. Our electronic nose (e-nose) prototype aims to demonstrate the potential of combining nanosensors and machine learning algorithms to identify different types of coffee.

Always follow your nose! The great lottery:
There's so much to try, experiment with, learn and, above all, SMELL at the Chair of Materials Science today! Take part in everything, collect stamps and take part in our lottery! There are great prizes to be won!



At 11pm then, you can move to the TUD HSZ:


where Solmar Varela will pitch the CISS effect (see also Solmar's twitter link)!
