Festival of Encounters
On IPK Gatersleben scientists from about 30 nations are engaged. To create a space for encounters with the different nationalities, the first Festival of Encounters at the Biotech Campus was launched in spring 2001.
The Festival of Encounters have been organized by the IPK together with the municipality Gatersleben and with the support of the companies at the Biotech Campus. That day, foreign employees at IPK offer the unique opportunity to meet various nations and to know them better. They inform visitors with instructional materials, music and dance performances, and often culinary impressions of the foreign cuisines.
The next Festival of Encounters takes place in 2019.
