    Audi Environmental Foundation: starting signal for “Smart HOBOS” high-tech beehive

    Bees pollinate about 80 percent of our agricultural plants and wild vegetation, so life without bees is almost impossible. Too little pollination would have severe consequences – both environmental and economic. With the worldwide unique “Smart HOBOS” (HOneyBee Online Studies) project, the Audi Stiftung für Umwelt GmbH (Audi Environmental Foundation) and the Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg are working to protect these vital and fascinating insects. On Tuesday, Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl, Board of Management Member for Production at AUDI AG and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Audi Environmental Foundation; Christoph Hillenbrand, District President of Upper Bavaria; Prof. Dr. Barbara Sponholz, Vice President of Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg; and bee expert Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz opened the research station at Audi’s production site in Münchsmünster. The first bees will soon move into their new home.
