Who We Are
To recognize Einstein’s significant contributions to society, a major international project to establish an Albert Einstein Discovery Center in the heart of the city has been launched.
This mission is spearheaded by our non-profit Association, the Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm e.V.
Formed on September 16, 2016, our Association now consists of members of all ages, including teachers, lawyers, politicians, engineers, physicists, students, pharmacists, marketing agents, filmmakers, children, tax attorneys, shop owners, homemakers, physicians and architects.
We are primarily citizens from Ulm and the surrounding area, but are also supported from enthusiastic members from around the world.
We are working on all levels ranging from political to financial support, to the project’s economic underpinning as well as educational approaches to make the Albert Einstein Discovery Center a reality.
What We Want
Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany and is the most famous physicist of the 20th century. His image is recognized by people of all ages around the world.
The members of our Association want to create a worthy tribute to him in his birthplace in the form of a modern museum: a Discovery Center. This Albert Einstein Discovery Center will honor Einstein and his significance for science, technology as well as society. Furthermore we see it as our task not only to emphasize the importance of science and technology, but also to inspire young people to choose STEM subjects when selecting their studies or career. Our goal is to establish a universal, extracurricular learning center with a comprehensive and modern view of Albert Einstein’s life and work within the historical context of Ulm.
The Albert Einstein Discovery Center and the city of Ulm will benefit from the intended cooperation with the “Hebrew University of Jerusalem”, home of the Einstein Archives. Such collaboration would result in a more intensive research collaboration between the universities of both cities. It would also help to build cultural bridges between Einstein’s birthplace Ulm and the last home of his intellectual heritage: Jerusalem.
With its unique 3-in-1 concept along with an architectural jewel enhancing the skyline of Ulm, the Discovery Center will be a magnet for locals, students, Einstein enthusiasts and tourists from all over the world.
