66th Meeting


At the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, some 400 young scientists from 80 countries had the opportunity for an in-depth exchange with 29 Nobel Laureates.

#LiNo16 was dedicated to physics and ran from 26 June to 1 July 2016.




Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Once every year, 30 to 40 Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange between scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines.





The Council and the Foundation feel committed to share the enthusiasm that characterises the annual encounters between Nobel Laureates and young scientists with the general public. It is an integral part of the mission to reach out beyond the meetings at Lindau and involve society in the dialogue on the importance of education, science and research.

Mainau Declaration 2015

At the 65th Lindau Meeting, 36 Nobel Laureates signed the Mainau Declaration 2015 on Climate Change, a political appeal for climate protection. The number of supporting Nobel Laureates has since then grown to 76. The declaration also garnered international attention at the COP21 climate summit in Paris.
