for Academic Partners
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings interact closely with a global network of academic partners to identify highly-talented young scientists and to nominate them for participation. Partners include national academies of sciences, ministries, research institutions, top-ranking universities, foundations and international scientific organisations. Additionally, the Central Banks of over 50 countries are involved as academic partners with the meetings on economic sciences thanks to the efforts of the Bank for International Settlements.
Coordinating with the council and foundation, these institutions organise the first stage of the selection process for young researchers. Best talents can submit applications for attendance at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings to these partners. Based on the selection criteria laid down by the council for each meeting, the committees of the academic partners initially decide whether applicants are to be permitted to register in the web-based database and thus – as the second stage of the selection process – be put forward to the council's review panel. The final decision is taken by this panel.
The international network of partners is in continual expansion. Renowned institutions in the fields of science and research conclude co-operation agreements with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. In the past few years, a series of memoranda of understanding have been signed with institutions from countries including Austria, Japan, the Principality of Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Siwtzerland and Thailand.
