MS Wissenschaft Brings the Bioeconomy to Linz

Cast off! MS Wissenschaft moors in Linz from 30 Sept. to 3 Oct. 2021 at the landing stage by the Ars Electronica Center – carrying a large cargo of sustainability. The science boat extends an invitation to explore the ideas behind the bioeconomy through games and challenges. The exhibition is an experience for the whole family – and admission is free!

Genuine organic heroes

Furniture made of popcorn, computers made of organic waste and detergents made of mushrooms – plants are real all-rounders and today they are being used to make many different products. But they have a lot more to offer than that! An increasing number of bio-based materials are now replacing chemically produced fibres or conventional plastic products. Science has already developed innovative technologies for this and continues to look for new possibilities.

Experiment, discover, be amazed

The 100-metre-long former freighter is laden with over 30 exhibits from research. The scientific topics are presented in entertaining ways and as games, making the exhibition interesting for old and young alike.

We look forward to your visit!
