Brandenburg Initiative for Research Dissemination

is a dynamic hub engaging in knowledge transfer and science communication, making academic research more inclusive and more accessible to the public. Our goal is to help researchers appeal to large audiences through unconventional approaches, innovative tools and impact strategies. We aim to inform a broader public about current research in fields most relevant for our society, to build resilience against disinformation and to inspire sustainable mindsets and behaviors.

We are your partners in research!


We are aware of the high workload you face as a researcher, the time pressure you are under, the challenges involved in being published; we also know how important it is for your high-quality academic work to have a prompt and lasting social impact.

BIRD Research

We give your research wings.


We help you disseminate your message towards audiences you never thought you could reach: school teachers and pupils in their class, school leaders and educators.

In this manner, your research can have a much broader societal impact.

We assist you to develop an impact and dissemination strategy for your own research project. We draw on our expertise in scientific transfer to help you develop materials and tools that would craft your message to reach new audiences. We use our international partners and networks of schools to disseminate your research and make your message heard.

We are your partners in teaching!


We know how difficult it is for you as an educator to transmit prescribed amounts of information while preserving in students their sense of wonder, their fascination about the complexity of our world, and their joy at learning.

BIRD Teaching

We give your class a bird’s-eye view.


We help you fill your lessons with accurate scientific information transmitted in a manner suitable to the age of your class. We help your students learn complex subjects in a playful way. In this manner, your lessons can be just as dense in content, but benefitting from a playful dynamic. We offer personalized innovative educational tools with research-based content and ludic methods for your educational needs. We tailor our educational games and instruments to your particular needs and the specific requirements of the curricula. We can organize play sessions and workshops with children in your school or events for teachers in a train-the-trainer format. We use our academic network to assist you in basing your content on research and inspire your students to fact-check.
