On the occasion of the Year of Science 2014 “Digital Society”, launched by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has invited international scientists and administrators to learn more about research activities in the area of modelling future scenarios at German universities and research institutes. The Science Tour offers German and international researchers the opportunity to discuss current developments with regard to modelling and simulation of future scenarios in the fields of maritime sciences, geosciences, systems biology, climate change, epidemiology, economics, disaster management and to define common areas of interest as starting points for future cooperation.
The Science Tour 2014 is part of the “Research in Germany – Land of Ideas” campaign, initiated by the BMBF in 2006 to strengthen and expand R&D collaboration between Germany and international partners.
