Since 1951, for
more than 70 years, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings support the exchange between different generations, scientific disciplines and cultures.
72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
The 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will be dedicated to Physiology/Medicine. We are looking forward to welcoming young scientists from this field in Lindau next summer for an inspiring week!
Our academic partners, from a worldwide network of most renowned science and research institutions, may nominate candidates for participation until 27 October 2022. Find out if there is an academic partner you can apply to by clicking on the button below.
Interested scientists from countries with no academic partner may apply from 20 September – 18 October 2022 via open application.
150 Nobel Laureates are calling for peace in the face of war emanating from Russian soil. To this end, they have signed a declaration initiated by the Max Planck Society and supported by the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
Next Gen Economics: Young Researchers Present Their Work to the World – and to Laureates
The Next Gen Economics Sessions were an excellent opportunity for the participants to present their work in front of an audience that includes some of the best economists in the world. From gender to game theory, there was no shortage of exciting topics.
That was #LINOecon! A week full of personal encounters, inspirational talks and fruitful scientific discussions. We were saying goodbye with the traditional boat trip from Lindau to Mainau Island. The scientific programme was concluded with a timely Panel Discussion on “Economics and Politics of War and Sanctions” and the boat trip back to Lindau.
How can we better allocate resources for the benefit of society? What role will digitalisation play in the future of work? Should there be stricter rules regarding social media? Questions that were discussed during #LINOecon.
Laureates and young economists have illuminated the vast reach of microeconomics over the course of #LINOecon, presenting an eclectic mix of micro studies on a range of topics that, taken together, may form a whole greater than the sum of its individual parts.
Today was the last day of #LINOecon in the Inselhalle, as we will head off to Mainau Island tomorrow, where we celebrate the final day of this eventful week. After a Partner Breakfast and a Morning Workout, the day went on with insightful lectures by several Laureates, Laureate Lunches, Science Walks and Next Gen Economic Sessions. Finally, our Bavarian Evening was a worthy end of the day.
Behavioural economics has highlighted what we have known all along – humans are emotional, myopic, and easily confused and distracted. At #LINOecon, laureates Robert Aumann, Richard Thaler and Daniel McFadden discussed how economists are embracing how we really behave to make safe predictions and inform decision-making.
Today, #LINOecon was once again filled with fruitful debates, lively discussions and personal encounters. The Laureates delivered topical and inspiring lectures and during Next Gen Economics sessions all eyes were on the young economists. Finally, day three was wrapped up by our Panel Discussion about “Social Change and Social Media”.
From Spectrum to Water and Healthcare – Auctions are Reshaping the World
People often sell things to the highest bidder. But there’s more than one way to auction something. The scientific lectures of the #LINOecon opening day focussed on auctions. A topic the 2020 Laureates of the prize in economic sciences were awarded for.
Panelists Oliver Hart, Eric S. Maskin, Saskia Meuchelböck, and Sir Christopher A. Pissarides discuss the efficient possibilities and deconstructive limits of armed actions or economic policy sanctions in times of war.
This teaching unit presents selected examples to illustrate the essential features of complex systems – a research field, for which Klaus Hasselmann, Syukuro Manabe and Giorgio Parisi were awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics.
Reinhard Genzel was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2020 “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy”. Explore his fascinating work lab and learn more about the research techniques and special instruments applied to detect distant supermassive objects in space like Sagittarius A*.
Nobel Laureates J. Georg Bednorz, Serge Haroche, Sir Konstantin S. Novoselov as well as medical scientists Amy Shepherd and Lillian Tugume focus on academic and non-academic career paths for scientists, and show what alternative paths are available.
In this lecture, Nobel Laureate Robert H. Grubbs gives examples of how sustainable catalytic processes can be used for the cost-effective extraction of petroleum carbon and other energy sources, as well as for curbing emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants.
