Night of Hearing

Night of Hearing

How does hearing work? What role does the brain play? How do you teach computers to hear? And do animals actually hear differently? The Night of Hearing offers answers to these questions and much more!

In the anniversary year of the University of Oldenburg, there are special occasions to experience science and research – such as the Night of Hearing. Hearing research is a central focus not only at the university. In Oldenburg, a unique network of high-profile partners is exploring the sense of hearing and developing the hearing systems of the future. The Night of Hearing provides special insights. Six institutions will be presenting a varied programme at three locations: the University with the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all and the Collaborative Research Centre Hearing Acoustics, Evangelisches Krankenhaus Oldenburg, Fraunhofer IDMT-HSA, Hörzentrum Oldenburg, Jade Hochschule and KIZMO.

In addition to short lectures, there will be many opportunities to join in - for example, you can test your hearing abilities, be amazed by acoustic illusions or take part in live demonstrations of a "hearing car". There will be exciting insights into highly specialised laboratories such as MEG, wave field synthesis lab or anechoic chambers. You will also find out how you can be part of cutting-edge research as a test person. Anyone interested in studying will receive information on the content and prospects of the study programmes "Hearing Technology and Audiology" and " Physics, Engineering and Medicine“. You can conclude the evening with a concert, open stage with creative contributions or a drink in the Hörgarten.
