Ask away! – Science will answer

Have you ever wondered about a day in the life of a university researcher? Have you ever wanted to ask scientific researchers something, but you’ve never had the chance? “Frag doch mal nach! – Wissenschaft gibt Antwort” or “Ask away! – Science will answer” gives you that opportunity you’ve been looking for.

In a live interview you can pose your questions to a rotating group of researchers from Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences. As a way for you to get to know each researcher beforehand, a short interview with him or her will be published in a newspaper and on our homepage.

The live interview is open to the public and people of all ages. Use the chance to pick their brains and ask all those questions you’ve been keeping bottled up over the years. Why? What are the reasons? Can you break this down in simpler terms? – We look forward to your questions and an evening of enjoyable and interesting interaction between the audience and the researcher being interviewed.



The next event will take place on Tuesday, 13 April 2021 at 4.30 p.m.
