The Pupils’ university, originally planned from 10th to 14th August 2020, unfortunately has to be canceled due to the current situation.

But don’t worry – we already have a new and customized date for you!

During the Saxon autumn holidays, in the period from October 19 to 30, 2020, we invite all prospective students from grade 10 to get to know our university, various courses and the city of Freiberg.

Let yourself be infected by the enthusiasm of our scientists and students for their specialist area in specially designed lectures, experiments, laboratory tours, excursions or competitions. In addition, you can of course explore the city of Freiberg as a place to study and live and make initial contacts with the university and its members.

We look forward to seeing you!

Opening Carbon Discovery Trail – June 18. 2020

What do smartphones, T-shirts and pencils have in common? They contain carbon!

The newly created Carbon Discovery Trail on our institute grounds explains this unique element and illustrates its influence on our life, our prosperity and the environment.

With the help of interactive boards, the tour around the IEC also shows how “green” fuels can be produced in the future or new products can be obtained from waste, and at the same time presents the large-scale test facilities in which the new technologies are researched.

At the opening with a festive unveiling on June 18, 2020 (10:00 a.m.) you have the opportunity to be part of the live stream. The trail is then open to all guests from 1:00 p.m. and can be visited daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

How much does it cost? – Nothing. Just drop by!
