Source: Charite – Universitatsmedizin Berlin International Festival of Science in Berlin and Remote Ten days dedicated to research, innovation and international exchange – Berlin Science Week and Falling Walls invite you to a Remote World Science Summit this year. With more than 200 virtual discussion events, workshops, exhibitions and performances, the organizers are defying the pandemic and want to promote a deeper understanding of the world. For example, neuroscientists from the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin will discuss how to deal with dementia. In addition, doctors from the Charité and the University of Zurich are asking themselves: Health apps – curse or blessing? The Berliner Stückwerkstatt approaches the topic of dementia on the theater stage and thus the questions: What if the time together is running out, when? Memories fade, a person drifts into dementia? The neuroscientists Dr. Miranka Wirth and Dr. Susanne Wegmann from the NeuroCure Cluster of Excellence, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) at the Charité answer questions from the audience and the virtual audience after the performance, among the current topics that were discussed and presented to the public are also central issues in the field of health care. Mobile applications such as health apps, for example, are an expanding field that is developing rapidly. Some of these digital companions have already become an integral part of everyday life. So it’s time to take a critical look at these innovations. Charité and the University of Zurich take on the pros and cons of mobile software in the health sector, a predominantly digital platform that brings together the international scientific community between November 1st and November 10th. The majority of the events are digitally accessible free of charge. Appropriate distance and hygiene rules apply to the remaining physical events.

Her daughter finally wants to know who her father was. The mother refused to answer this question all her life. The memories are now blurring, threatening to disappear entirely. A touching, at the same time funny, fantastically surreal play about remembering, suppressing, forgetting and losing yourself. A thought-provoking performance exploring the effects of dementia on the individual and the family, followed by a panel discussion with the production team and neuroscientists Dr. Miranka Wirth and Dr. Susanne Wegmann.More information: This is a hybrid event. You can follow the live stream on the NeuroCure YouTube channel or join the discussion and ask questions. Mobile Health Applications: Curse or Blessing? | Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 4 p.m. to 5.30 p.m., panel discussion via livestream Do you ask an app about acute complaints? Or have you downloaded the Corona warning app? The possibilities of health apps are enormous and they have become part of everyday life. On the one hand, they can facilitate prevention and diagnosis, coordinate medical care or represent an important support for the doctor-patient relationship. On the other hand, critical considerations about the benefits and risks are also important. Hundreds of thousands of health apps are downloaded these days. But do you work? Do they hinder or enrich the doctor-patient relationship? Many of them are available for free. What happens to the data? How is personal data protection guaranteed and how do third parties earn money from it? The Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the University of Zurich bring together renowned scientists, doctors, IT experts and decision-makers to talk about the prospects, benefits and risks of mobile applications in the health sector.
