Many of the characteristics of the Nobel Prize are well reflected in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. They are very much in the spirit of Alfred Nobel, in the sense that there is this drive to encourage scientific progress.

In the films, laureates and students clash over the future of energy production, grapple with drug development, discuss dwindling supplies of metal catalysts and debate science’s role in the developing world.
