Falling Walls is a unique international platform for leaders from the worlds of science, business, politics, the arts and society. It was initiated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

Inspired by this world-changing event on 9 November 1989, the question of every Falling Walls gathering is: Which walls will fall next? Falling Walls fosters discussion on research and innovation and promotes the latest scientific findings among a broad audience from all parts of society.

The Falling Walls Conference is at the heart of the Falling Walls days and was held for the first time in 2009. On one day, 20 world-class researchers from all disciplines and parts of the world each showcase the breakthroughs they are working on in 15-minute talks. Among the speakers are Nobel laureates, artists, heads of states, and governments. The conference attracts an audience from over 80 nations.

The Falling Walls Lab is a forum for the next generation of outstanding academics and professionals from all over the world and awards the title "Falling Walls Young Innovator of the Year". 100 scholars per year are invited to present their work to a distinguished jury of high-ranking representatives from science and business – in three minutes each. Throughout the year,
international Falling Walls Labs are organized all over the globe. The winners of each international Falling Walls Lab qualify for the Falling Walls Lab Finale.

Falling Walls Venture
is an international forum for outstanding science-based start-up companies, venture capitalists and strategic investors and awards the title "Falling Walls Science Start-Up of the Year". Each year, 20 leading academic institutions and venture capital firms present their best new science-based companies to a distinguished jury in ten minutes each.
