AVETH is inviting you to see one of the world’s leading private collections of clocks that can be found at the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum. Over 300 very valuable exhibits present the history of timekeeping from 1400 BC to the present day: from sundials to water and tower clocks, Renaissance automata, magnificent pendulum clocks, elaborately decorated pocket watches and the prototype of the first quartz wristwatch. Scientific navigation devices and some very fragile automatic watches are also featured. Due to the size of the museum number of participants is limited to 15.

You are cordially invited to join the “Science in Perspective Talks”, organized by the D-GESS, which tackles current scientific and social questions and highlights what contributions the humanities, social and political sciences can make to these topics. Examples include internet security, monetisation of higher education or the bashing of scientific experts by politicians. The first event this semester is about “Internet and Trust”.
