VIPs interested in HIVEOPOLIS

In several events, we exhibit our scientific work and developments to the general public, or to educate children. In these occasions, prominent VIPs inform themselves about our work and participate in the dissemination of project results. For example, the four-times F1-champion Sebastian Vettel is always interested in our approach to develop technology that supports ecosystems, like here in one of several “BioBienenApfel” Events in Spielberg, Austria.
