Scientists of our department at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen used the EcoBus system to research flexible mobility. In pilot phases in the Bad Gandersheim and Kalefeld areas and around Goslar, Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Osterode in the Harz mountains, up to 10 buses were operated. Together with the public transport authorities, the Regionalverband Braunschweig area and the Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund in the South of Lower Saxony, we tested the results of our basic research in the two pilot trials in order to improve the theoretical predictions and test them in practice.

This year, 24 students visit the MPIDS for the Future Day. In our laboratories they are able to extract their own DNA from their oral mucosa cells and produce glue from milk. At the end of the future day there is a spectacular experiment on the production of strawberry ice cream from liquid nitrogen, cream and jam.
