Where will the Queen's Lecture take place?
The Queen's Lecture will take place inside and in front of the TU Berlin main building. This necessitates certain access restrictions. Only registered guests and event staff will be permitted access to the restricted areas. Restricted areas include the western foyer with its lecture theaters, the main foyer, the eastern foyer and the Audimax and H 104 as well as the rear areas including CampusCenter and the eastern back entrance on the ground floor. On the first floor, the whole area surrounding the atrium will be restricted, including the galleries on higher floors. Offices within the restricted areas will also be affected.
I am a journalist. How can I register?
The accreditation will be managed by the Federal Press Office (Bundespresseamt). They will open the registration process on June 10 (www.cvd.bundesregierung.de ). On June 12, the detailed program for the state visit will be released, including the event at TU Berlin.
How many places will there be for journalists, and where will they be located?
We would like to give as many journalists as possible the chance to cover the event at TU Berlin. There will be a large media stand in front of the main building. Fifty journalists will be allowed access to the Audimax. The rbb (Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg) will provide a live stream for other stations and will also broadcast the event live on TV. During the accreditation process you will be able to choose between the different spots reserved for journalists.
I'm a radio journalist. How can I take part in the event?
Radio journalists will have the option of
accessing the (pool) sound via the switch room at Masurenallee.
Unfortunately there will be no possibility for bringing your own
recording equipment to the event inside the main building. Please
