For scientists they represent a highly complex and intriguing field of research that calls for interdisciplinary cooperation. The Volkswagen Foundation has been supporting projects that investigate extreme events for a long time now. On 6-7 October, the grantees will be presenting in Hanover their latest research findings and discuss possible practical applications for society.
