The 60th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting was an extremely enriching personal experience from which I returned full of motivation and new creative ideas. I have to say I feel deeply honoured for having had the opportunity of being there. The Nobel Laureates as well as the other participants were always open to discussion and their power of motivation and personality were really inspiring.
