70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (interdisciplinary)


View Full Event Details

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event will take place only online

In order to be able to include the traditional Lindau science community in the upcoming 70th anniversary
, the Council pursues the concept of a hybrid event this year: The scientific programme with lectures and discussions is composed of a mixture in which the panellists come together both in the Inselhalle in Lindau and virtually from many other parts of the world. As with last year's Online Science Days, the organisers put particular emphasis on the opportunity of an interactive exchange between all participants, in addition to the broadcast.

This year, Nobel Laureates from all filed will be invited.

Since their foundation in 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have developed into a unique international scientific forum. The annual Meetings provide an opportunity for an exchange between different generations, cultures and disciplines. The theme of the Lindau Meetings alternates between Physics, Chemistry or Physiology and Medicine – the three Nobel Prize scientific disciplines. Every five years an interdisciplinary Meeting takes place, while the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years.

It was the Lindau physicians Franz Karl Hein and Gustav Wilhelm Parade who approached Count Lennart Bernadotte af Wisborg with the idea of a conference of Nobel Laureates and proceeded to jointly implement this with him. Some 35,000 students, PhD candidates and post-docs have since taken part in the meeting. Their experience of the Meeting may be literally once-in-a-lifetime, but they remain permanent members of the Lindau Alumni Network and ambassadors for scientific dialogue.

All year long the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings continue to pursue their “Mission Education” aimed at emphasising the importance of science and advocating science and research. This is also the purpose for which the online mediatheque is being developed into a learning platform which includes teaching materials for schools.
