End of the mask obligation as of January 31, 2023

By amending the Corona Ordinance, which was passed at the meeting on January 24, 2023, the Baden-Württemberg state cabinet decided to lift the mask requirement. This affects the areas of local public transport (ÖPNV), facilities for the homeless and staff in medical practices, dental practices, psychotherapeutic practices and other comparable outpatient medical facilities. The regulations come into force on January 31, 2023.

Mask still recommended

Many people will be pleased that the mask requirement has been lifted for public transport, but wearing a mask is still recommended. This applies especially to people who are sick or ill and in closed rooms.

In the January 24, 2023 press release from the state of Baden-Württemberg, Minister Hermann appeals to people's personal responsibility: "Those who voluntarily want to protect themselves and others can continue to wear masks." Mouth-to-nose coverings not only help protect against coronavirus, but they also ward off cold or flu viruses. "If you feel sick or have a cold, continue to wear mask or it's best to stay home."

The categories

1st place: € 3,000 | 2nd place: € 2,000 | 3rd place: € 1,000

The Young Scientist Award is aimed at anyone who is still at the beginning of their research career: Students, PhD students and young postdocs who want to bring their research to as many people as possible. No matter how much experience you already have with social media - the important thing is that you explain your scientific interest in an exciting way. The partner of the Young Scientist Award is the German Future Prize.


1st place: € 3,000 | 2nd place: € 2,000 | 3rd place: € 1,000

Do science and social media go hand in hand for you? The Scientist & Research Institution Award is aimed at all scientists with a doctorate or working in research who communicate science and research in video contributions - comprehensibly, precisely and entertainingly. Teamwork is expressly permitted, because this category also welcomes submissions from entire research centers or university institutes!


1st place: € 3,000 | 2nd place: € 2,000 | 3rd place: € 1,000

Communicating scientific topics can be quite a challenge for many scientists in their day-to-day research. YouTubers, Instagrammers, etc., on the other hand, often lack the right experts for exciting topics from science. The Tandem Award is just right for collaborations between both worlds. Co-productions by scientific institutions and scifluencers or production companies can also be submitted here.


3.000 €

Exciting multimedia contributions are not only available in German. The Short & Crisp Award focuses on internationality. We are looking for entertaining science videos under 15 minutes on social media in all languages. The partner of the Short & Crisp Award is the SILBERSALZ Science & Media Festival in Halle.

Special prices

In addition to the video categories, two special awards will be presented, offering room for experimentation:


1.000 €

This special award knows (almost) no boundaries and is suitable for anyone who feels comfortable away from the moving image focus. Here, particularly innovative online formats of science communication are sought. An entertaining photo essay from field research, a dedicated website for lab bacteria or an interactive online exhibition: There are no limits to creativity in this category!


1.000 €

With this award, we close our eyes and listen, because podcasts, radio plays and radio features with scientific content also tell interesting stories and get people excited about science. The Audio Special Award honors exciting, comprehensible and target-group-oriented contributions that do without any visual material. Scientists, media professionals and all audiophiles interested in science can submit entries!

For 1 € a day through Baden-Württemberg - JugendticketBW comes to 1 March 2023

Attention students: From March 1, 2023, you can travel throughout Baden-Württemberg by bus and train for just one euro a day. With the JugendticketBW, the government is not only implementing a point in the coalition agreement, but also ensuring that public transport becomes even more attractive and that you are relieved financially. The ticket is valid in all 19 transport associations in Baden-Württemberg. However, there is one exception: long-distance traffic - e.g. ICE, EC or IC.

What are the requirements for the Youth Ticket?

The new ticket is designed for two target groups and must not exceed the following age:

  • Children and young people up to the age of 21.
  • Schoolchildren, students, trainees and persons doing voluntary service up to the age of 27.

Another prerequisite is that you must either be a resident of Baden-Württemberg or that your school/university must be located in the state.

What does the Youth Ticket cost?

The ticket is only available as a subscription. The following regular subscription models will be available:

  • Annual subscription: 365 € per year
  • Monthly subscription: 30,42 € per month

For students whose university has a semester ticket agreement with the transport association, the amount is reduced by the solidarity fee. More information will follow.

Where can I buy the ticket?

The ticket will be offered in the sales outlets of the respective transport association. In addition, it will also be made available online. Whether the ticket is issued in paper form or as an e-ticket will be decided by the respective transport association.

For the Heilbronn public transport system (HNV), the ticket can be applied for at the HNV-ABO centers in Heilbronn, Wüstenrot and Künzelsau. However, this is not yet possible at the moment (as of January 17, 2023). When exactly it will be available is still unclear. We will keep you up to date.

Special feature for students of Heilbronn University

Heilbronn University (HHN) has a semester ticket agreement with the HNV/Kreisverkehr Schwäbisch Hall (KSVH). This means that with your semester fee you also pay a solidarity fee of 15 € which is deducted from the regular price of the semester ticket. Therefore, it will not yet be technically possible to issue the JugendticketBW as a subscription for the summer semester 2023 and winter semester 2023/24. For the time being, it will therefore be issued in the usual way as a half-year ticket at the usual points of sale.

  • Price for the period from 01 March to 31 August 2023: 167.52 euros

Students aged 27 and over will still be able to purchase the regular semester ticket.

Besides a Prize money 300 € the winner will participate in a renowned communication and media training by the National Institute for Science Communication (NaWik). This year, NaWik is also sponsoring a voucher for a #WissKomm seminar from its extensive in-house offering worth €295.

As a winner, you also qualify to take part in the FameLab Germany finals in Bielefeld, Germany, and thus also have the chance to take part in the grand international finals.

  1. Prize: 300 € + communication and media training + #WissKomm seminar from the range offered by the National Institute for Science Communication (NaWik) worth 295 € + participation in the FameLab Germany finals in Bielefeld
  2. Prize: €200 + communication and media training + participation in FameLab Germany: final in Bielefeld

The winner of FameLab Germany will take part in the international final.

When and where?

The participants will compete in four regional finals for a place in the FameLab Germany finals in Bielefeld. In the preliminary round in Karlsruhe on March 29, 2023 the FameLab winner for Southwest Germany will be determined at the Kulturzentrum Tollhaus.

The German final will be held in Bielefeld on May 25, 2023. Accommodation and travel expenses will be reimbursed.

What's the point?

FameLab gives you the opportunity to give your field of research just the right amount of publicity. The media presence and success of the FameLabbers is remarkable: The winners of the last years are invited again and again to (professional) events, panel discussions and workshops after FameLab, among others to the TEDx series.
