The “Science Year”, organized yearly by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will put its focus on cities this year. According to the motto “Science Year 2015 – City of the Future”, Germans are asked to submit ideas and suggestions on how they picture future cities. The goal of the Science Year is to discuss and find solutions for upcoming challenges such as eco-friendly energy supply in urban areas or the consequences resulting from demographic change.
