To fathom the co-creation of STEM scientists and (future) filmmakers is the aim of Fraunhofer MEVIS’ collaboration with the Stiftung für MINT-Entertainment-Education-Excellence (MINTEEE) and the ifs internationale filmschule köln. In 2019, the focus is on a three-part exploration of sustainable formats of cooperation, promoting a mutual understanding, teaching and learning in hands-on workshops about narrative design, digital medicine and ideation for fiction.

On Friday, May 24 the first part, the hands-on workshop for STEM scientists “Narrative Design – Storytelling for the communication of scientific content – How opportunities, risks and ethical issues of research and innovation can be conveyed through cinematic stories” took place at Fraunhofer MEVIS, held by Prof. Dr. Joachim Friedmann (ifs) and Dr. Marion Esch (MINTEEE).

The second and third parts, including hands-on workshops for film students and filmmakers to learn about digital medicine and train an AI, held by Fraunhofer MEVIS scientists as well as the confluence of the exploration in an collaborative ideation session, will take place in October 2019 at ifs in Cologne.
