In recent years, there has been a dramatic depletion of bee populations. There are many reasons for this. The reasons include the increase in numbers of varroa mites in beehives, a lack of food supply or the increasing use of pesticides. In addition, there is a lack of young beekeepers, who can take on this problem.
Research on bee mortality - Smart HOBOS helps here. The high-tech beehive of the Audi Environmental Foundation collects valuable data.
The Oak Forest project is going online. The oaks have been equipped with intelligent measuring and corresponding sensor technology for determining the interaction between density and the ecosystem performance of the trees.
Audi and we4bee start project on behavioural analysis of bees. Beehives transmit huge amounts of data (Big Data) on environmental influences.
Planting trees against climate change - this is the idea behind the research project Oak forest, one of the first projects supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation.
The bee research by we4bee and supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation has collected billions of individual data points so far. The first scientific findings are now available.
The Greentech Festival took place in Berlin for the second time from September 16 to 18. Within the festival, the Audi Environmental Foundation could present some of its Greenovation projects.
We have all probably eaten algae at some point – wrapped around maki sushi or used as a thickening agent in instant meals. Algae, and microalgae in particular, have also been cultivated at the industrial level since the 1950s with the aim of preserving natural raw materials for a variety of areas of application.
For the second time we are participating in the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, a trade fair about green technologies and sustainable lifestyle.
Going on a journey of discovery with the honeybee Pauline - now it’s possible in the Markus Wasmeier open-air museum Schliersee. For several years now, we and our project partner have been committed to bringing the fascinating world of bees closer to young and old. Have a look too!
Measuring an orchard meadows with drones - Audi Environmental Foundation supports innovative project using citizen science, big data and pattern recognition to preserve biodiversity.
For the first time, the Audi Environmental Foundation is issuing a challenge for the worldwide marathon of ideas on innovations of climate protection in our cities.
For the first time, the Audi Environmental Foundation together with the Technical University of Ingolstadt (THI) has been promoting a sustainability award. The prize rewards the best thesis in this field with 1,000 euro. In this way, the foundation wants to promote young scientists at the Ingolstadt site.
