The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has developed the InnoTruck as a way to kick-start a public dialog about the impact of innovation on society. "The InnoTruck shows us today what our life in the future could look like," explained Federal Minister Johanna Wanka at the launch of the InnoTruck initiative at HANNOVER MESSE 2017. "It is an exciting way of explaining new developments in science and research and sparking a fact-based dialog about how our world is changing." The InnoTruck is designed to facilitate direct access to scientific discoveries and technical developments.
Featuring around 100 square meters of mobile exhibition space, the InnoTruck is a fascinating venue for an exciting journey of discovery that takes in everything from research and technology to applications, career profiles and how to get involved. As you’d expect, besides offering a lot to look at, the InnoTruck also encourages everyone to get hands-on, too, and try out exhibits for themselves. "I am certain a great many people will find it an exciting and educational window on how the future could look. Visitors can look forward to a state-of-the-art exhibition and an adventurous, hands-on tour with a varied program of events," said Wanka at HANNOVER MESSE 2017, speaking after the inaugural tour of the InnoTruck.
Local authorities, schools, colleges, universities, companies, research institutions and many other organizations can submit a request for the InnoTruck to attend their own events - free of charge. An inquiry form for requesting specific dates and other information online is available at www.innotruck.de. The InnoTruck team from the BMBF is also happy to help interested parties find out more about a wider supporting program. For example, special tours and workshops are available for school groups.
