We are living longer. We are becoming fewer. We are becoming more diverse. The challenges faced by our society are in the focus of the “Science Year 2013 – The Demographic Opportunity”. The exhibition “Alle Generationen in einem Boot” (All Generations in One Boat) on board of MS Wissenschaft will stop in Karlsruhe Rheinhafen, Becken 2, from June 28 to July 1 and provide insight into current research. The exhibits of KIT and other partners will make the visitors experience science in an entertaining way. Admission will be free.
