Con gressa has been supporting the organizers of science nights for many years – with consulting and concept design services as well as managing certain aspects of the realisation of events. For example, we worked for the Night of Laboratories (Nacht der Labore) in Lübeck, the Night of Knowledge (Nacht des Wissens) in Göttingen, the TU-Night in Braunschweig and the Campus Night Osnabrück. Since 2011 we also regularly manage events for the city of Hamburg, for instance in 2019 with the Summer of Knowledge (Sommer des Wissens).
Since 2002 and almost continuously until 2019, con gressa organized the Long Night of the Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) in Berlin and Potsdam, an annual event where about 70 scientific and science-related institutions open their doors to interested citizens. Our tasks included project management, budget management and participant support as well as the coordination of ticketing and shuttle bus transportation. We were also responsible the event marketing using a variety of advertising measures, a website, press and public relations, and social media.
