The pandemic has been an exceptional situation for everyone. All but essential laboratory activities were temporarily suspended, a number of childcare centers and schools had to close, and lots of work was – and is still being – done remotely at home. But how much social distancing can science – which requires constant discussion and exchange – take? The founding coordinators of BR 50, an association of Berlin non-university research institutions, are hosting an event to examine this issue and explore questions such as: What has worked well and what would be done differently? What do researchers want to preserve for the future? What conditions are problematic for young researchers in particular?
