Since 1951, for more than 70 years, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings support the exchange between different generations, scientific disciplines and cultures.
Lindau Online Sciathon
The 4th Lindau Online Sciathon, a 48-hour, hackathon-type event for Lindau Alumni and #LINO24 Young Scientists, will take place 19–21 April 2023. Lindau Alumni can submit their project ideas on “Physics as a Driver of a Sustainable World” until 3 March 2024 via the Lindau Alumni Network.
We are awarding travel and accommodation grants, this time for journalists with a passion for physics. Media representatives who would like to cover the 73rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting are invited to apply until mid-March.
Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine 2023: A New Way of Looking at Vaccines
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2023 is awarded to Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman who laid the basis for inventing mRNA vaccines. Their research made it possible to develop COVID-19-vaccines quickly.
Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023: Miniscule Colour-Emitting Dots
Tiny but mighty: Quantum dots are being used to improve and refine the colours that we can see in television sets and in lighting. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023 is awarded to Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Brus and Aleksey Yekimov for the discovery and development of these particles.
#LINO23 Alumna Shatarupa Bhattacharya: Enthusiasm and Motivation Matter
Shatarupa Bhattacharya focuses on the genetic disorder thalassemia as well as on blood-borne infectious diseases such as malaria and toxoplasmosis. She shared her #LINO23 experiences and reviewed her career as a female scientist from India.
Integrating Artificial Intelligence into Healthcare: Ethical Frontiers
Lindau Alumnus Polat Goktas participated in the Physics Meeting 2016. Learn more about his experiences in Lindau and his professional odyssey, taking him from Ankara to the corridors of Harvard Medical School, and eventually leading him to the historic beauty of Dublin, focusing on various fields of artificial intelligence.
Marius Müller-Westernhagen New Member of the Honorary Senate of the Foundation
The German singer and songwriter Marius Müller-Westernhagen recently received his Certificate of Induction into the Honorary Senate of the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. Nobel Laureate Emmanuelle Charpentier attended the ceremony in Berlin.
Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2023
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the decision to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2023 to Claudia Goldin “for having advanced our understanding of women’s labour market outcomes”.
On Friday, 6 October 2023, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced to award the 2023 Nobel Peace Prize to Narges Mohammadi “for her fight against the oppression of women in Iran and her fight to promote human rights and freedom for all”.
On Wednesday, 4 October 2023, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2023 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Brus and Alexei I. Ekimov “for the discovery and synthesis of quantum dots”.
Auctions are a predominant market strategy that determines price formation in many areas of life and the economy. Recent research results of Nobel Laureates Robert B. Wilson and Paul R. Milgrom on the currently widely applied Simultaneous Multiple Round Auction (SMRA) are presented in the Teaching Guide.
In 1997, Svante Pääbo succeeded in sequencing parts of the mitochondrial DNA of a Neanderthal. This teaching unit introduces the field of palaeogenetics, which focuses on the genetic analysis of historical and prehistoric genetic material from fossils, mummified organisms, archaeological remains and other samples. This ancient DNA, also known as aDNA, provides important insights into past life forms and evolution.
This Topic Cluster introduces key observational techniques to specify the fundamental questions about the physics of space: Starting with measurement techniques in the visible light spectrum to methods for the determination of non-visible particles, such as the detection of cosmic rays or neutrinos, the Topic Cluster ends with the discovery of non-light signals caused by black holes. These ‘messengers from space’ provide central conclusions on the nature of cosmic large- and small-scale events.
Chemical reactions have often been discovered by accident. In his lecture given at the 1986 Lindau Meeting, Nobel Laureate Sir Derek H.R. Barton, who discovered what is known today to be the Barton reaction, describes several chemical reactions that do not obey the statistical laws of chemistry but have occurred by chance.
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.
