MEndel's 200th

2022 is Gregor Johann Mendel's bicentennial birthday.
We are the
GJM200 project at University of Vienna.

We are the INTERREG AT-CZ GJM200 project partners at University of Vienna (2021-2022). As an interdisciplinary team of biologists, philosophers, and science communicators, we are developing three public-facing programs on the legacy of Gregor J. Mendel in collaboration with our strategic partners: the Natural History Museum of Vienna (NHM Wien) and the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI), Klosterneuburg.

KLI SYMPOSIUM: MENDEL'S LEGACY IN SCIENCE & SOCIETY

MENDEL STORIES

Led by Barbara Fischer, Lynn Chiu, and Philipp Mitteroecker at University of Vienna, our mission is to combine theoretical insights from evolutionary biology, philosophy of biology, and science communication to deepen and enrich the public engagement of the life sciences.

Our starting point is Mendel's bicentennial birthday. In collaboration with the Deck50 immersive science space of Natural History Museum of Vienna, we situate Mendel's work under a broader conception of inheritance and bring alive his life, science, and legacy through an interactive theater, a science quiz, a laboratory activity, and a science-art game. At the KLI, we will critically reflect on the impact and legacy of Mendel's work in five areas: history of biology, biology, science education, medicine, and society.
