Participating for the first time in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting was a fantastic experience. The very nice and fruitful exchanges I had with young scientists from all around the world, their perception of research careers, motivations and expectations truly enriched my own vision on the actual evolution of science in the context of a globalized world.
