In a state-wide competition, pupils in Baden-Württemberg are invited to submit their answers to this and five other questions relating to the future. The winners will be honored by the Baden-Württemberg Minister of Science, Research, and the Arts, Theresia Bauer, during the final celebration in May at KIT. The submission deadline will be on Thursday, April 19, 2012.
