This year’s CITY CYCLING in Potsdam begins on September 5th. The Potsdam Science Park team will be joining in. Cycling with the Potsdam Science Park is possible upon registration, all cycling kilometers are collected individually via app.

A basic principle in science is to make the world a little bit better. The Potsdam Science Park would like to contribute to making Potsdam even more climate-friendly and its citizens even fitter by participating in the CITY CYCLING campaign. To this end, employees of three Max Planck Institutes, two Fraunhofer Institutes, the Brandenburg State Archives, various companies and startups as well as students of the University of Potsdam (Golm Campus) and residents of Golm are pedaling together.

>>> We will reward the three Potsdam Science Park cyclists with the most experienced kilometers with a surprise package each!
