The exhibition ship MS Wissenschaft will make a stop at the passenger cargo port of Nuremberg from October 22-26. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Research, the initiative addresses the topic of bioeconomics, which is also at the heart of the 2020/21 Science Year. A bio-economy means a change “from a petroleum-based economy that uses raw materials towards a circular economy with renewable raw materials,” as Cordola Clydet of the ministry explains on the project website.
