Innovation place of the year 2023: Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm

21. November 2023

On November 17th, this year’s winners of the INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR were announced in Berlin. The audience award in the innovation location category went to the Albert Einstein Discovery Center e. V.

In 2029 – on Albert Einstein’s 150th birthday – an important center in the birthplace of one of the most famous people in the world will carry his name and his achievements with radiance far beyond Ulm and Germany. It will be the only discovery center in the world that can officially bear the name “ALBERT EINSTEIN”.

Modern, exciting and understandable – the Albert Einstein Discovery Center will consist of three parts and will make Einstein’s legacy not only understandable but also tangible for the general public.

Several Nobel Prize winners are supporting the pioneering project, and star architect Daniel Libeskind, who, among other things, designed the master plan for the new World Trade Center in New York, will be responsible for the planning and design of the Albert Einstein Discovery Center in Ulm.

The worldwide sensational project is initiated and supported by private and voluntary supporters, sponsors and donors – gathered at the Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm e.V.

The city of Ulm supports the project and will maintain a city center location near the main train station. The Albert Einstein Discovery Center is a highlight in the Ulm innovation region. The region, as one of the most economically dynamic and start-up-active regions in Germany, will thus gain a tourist attraction for the whole of southern Germany with global appeal.
