On the weekend 13.-15.11.2020 our PhD student Anne Lewerentz took part in an Innovation Challenge of the Bavarian State Ministry of Digital Affairs (https://code-bavaria.de/innovation-challenge).

The challenge was designed as a competition to develop digital innovations for climate and environmental protection. Anne and her team invented a concept for an APP called “SAVEDiversity. Wir können nur schützen, was wir kennen” (see video below – German only!). It encourages people to get to know their native biodiversity. 

At the Bavarian Digital Summit (https://code-bavaria.de/digitalgipfel2020) the winners were announced and Anne’s group was awarded the Special Jury Prize by Judith Gerlach (Bavarian Minister of State for Digital Affairs).
