Patents can take you anywhere, even into space. Climate Minister Leonore Gewessler and Patent Office President Mariana Karepova invited to a lunch with extraterrestrial ideas and the great inventors of Beetle ForTech. Delicious cocktails - non-alcoholic on request. Not an astronaut lunch, though, but a delicious buffet.
