Since 1951, for more than 70 years, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings support the exchange between different generations, scientific disciplines and cultures.
Looking Back at 2022
2022 was a special year in which two meetings could take place, finally on site in Lindau again. Our annual report offers ample opportunity to review the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to Chemistry and the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences. The report also summerises all other activities of the Council and Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings in the last year.
We hope you enjoy browsing through the online version.
The next Lindau Meeting will be dedicated to Physiology/Medicine. We are looking forward to welcoming Young Scientists from this field in Lindau in summer 2023 for an inspiring week!
Our global network of Academic Partners, most renowned science and research institutions, nominated candidates for participation. Interested scientists from countries with no academic partner had the opportunity to apply via the open application track.
The process of evaluation and selection is ongoing. In spring 2023, the results will be announced.
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.
Young Scientists at #LINO23 – Autoimmune Diseases and Cardiovascular Risk

Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine 2022: Cavemen Relatives
Nobel Laureate Svante Pääbo forged an entirely new field in evolutionary biology: paleogenomics. The sequencing of DNA from a Neanderthal bone and publishing the genome were the milestones in his research.
Lindau Alumna Paola Libertad García Medel explores the DNA replication of plants. Further knowledge about the DNA replication in plants could help to increase food security by improving crops and yields.
Lindau Alumna Ruth Rittinghaus was awarded for an essay about her research topic. Microscopic plastic particles are almost ubiquitous in the environment. This is a problem, but tailor-made bioplastics may offer hope of a solution.
Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2022
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the decision to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2022 to Ben S. Bernanke, Douglas W. Diamond and Philip H. Dybvig “for research on banks and financial crises.”
The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced to award the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize to human rights advocate Ales Bialiatski from Belarus, the Russian human rights organisation Memorial and the Ukrainian human rights organisation Center for Civil Liberties.
The Swedish Academy awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Literature to Annie Ernaux “for the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements and collective restraints of personal memory.”
The 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be awarded to Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal, 1986 Lindau Alumnus, and K. Barry Sharpless “for the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry.”
Aaron Ciechanover: The COVID-19 Pandemic and Bioethics

What are the principal aspects of auction design theory? In this panel Laureates Paul R. Milgrom, Roger B. Myerson, Robert B. Wilson and Young Economist Angie Acquatella discuss the applications of practical auction design theory in the real world, such as auctions in the electricity market, water auctions or spectrum auctions.
Synthetic chemistry in particular offers almost unlimited possibilities to create new products, ranging from drugs to visual displays that sustain modern society. In his lecture, Ben L. Feringa talks about the joyful journey of discovery during his scientific career.
Is economic growth compatible with climate change? This new Topic Cluster explores economic activity and how it affects the world’s climate with contributions from the Laureates Lars Peter Hansen, Paul R. Milgrom and Steven Chu.
