Who is BioWissKomm?

BioWissKomm is a small but well connected company dedicated to support science communication in schools and the public but also to help scientists in teaching and research. 

BioWissKomm was founded in 2021 by Wolfgang Nellen who initiated the non-profit association Science Bridge in 1996. Unfortunately, Kassel University terminated the very successful collaboration in 2021. Science Bridge had to be dissolved in 2022 and BioWissKomm took over most of the expertise. Even though we are commercial, we offer services at an affordable price and may give discounts for those who have insufficient funding – talk to us! 

Our expertise: 

With Science Bridge, we have accumulated experience over 25 years with teaching courses in molecular biology on all levels (from the general public to high school and to training courses for university lecturers). Several former Science Bridge members are now working with BioWissKomm. We offer lectures, seminars and workshops (online or live) on various topics of bio-sciences by our own staff and by expert partners from scientific associations.  

We provide advice for lab equipment, experiments for undergraduate courses and support for public presentations with artwork and design.

FreiBioWissKomm “Ambassadors”

Science Bridge, the predecessor of BioWissKomm, did not only work in Germany but also had long lasting contacts to more than 20 Indonesian universities. We do our best to continue these collaborations.
During the last two years we have established contacts to schools and NGOs in Tansania. We will try to extend these collaborations with the help of young “BioWissKomm-Ambassadors”.
They can serve as first contacts, answer questions and help to work out a suitable project.
You may contact BioWissKomm directly, in some cases it may be easier to first talk to the Ambassadors in the local language.
