Our Year in Three Photos
DWIH New York events got an accidental facelift in 2020. Our January 8 event with the Leibniz Association was our last public event in the German House. We hosted our first our first hybrid, livestreamed event on democracy and education with the University of Cologne on March 10. After trying out Zoom, GoToMeeting and WebEx, we finally found our groove in the digital sphere. We're looking forward to bringing you digital, hybrid and in-person events in 2021. Check out our 2020 Photo Gallery to peak more inside the DWIH New York.

A Workshop at the FUTURE FORUM: Building Biopolis
Forget Christmas Movies!

Check out all the events we hosted in 2020 on the DWIH New York YouTube channel.
FUTURE FORUM: Building Biopolis
An engaged audience of 190 attendees came together online October 14-17 to envision Biopolis, the green city of the future, in the second annual FUTURE FORUM.

Watch our recap video, and check out an unseen graphic visualization of Biopolis.
Breakthrough of the Year
For the first time ever, the Breakthrough of the Year at the Falling Walls Global Finale came from the U.S.
Dr. Shawana Tabassum's research improving diagnosis for neonatal conditions advanced her from the Falling Walls Lab Boston to win first place globally.

The Faces of German Innovation
In June the DWIH New York committed to bringing light to the important, underrepresented contributions of Black and POC Germans, those with immigration backgrounds, LGBTQ folk and people with disabilities.

Check out our campaign #InclusiveResearchGermany.
An Eye Toward 2021
The 2021 annual topic of the five DWIHs worldwide is Society in Transition: Impacts of the Pandemic. We're exploring the legacy of 2020 in topics like sustainability, work, health, governance and more. Join us, our experts and German-American partners to connect, learn and grow next year.

Till then, here are the questions we're thinking on. We invite you to think with us.

  • What do we want 2020's legacy to be? 
  • What do we want to see manifested in 2021? 
  • How can we ensure sustained momentum as we usher in the beginning of something new? 

Looking forward to another amazing year with you,
Dietrich, Julia, Jarred, Christian and Ben,
Your DWIH New York Team. 👋
