Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Once every year, around 30 Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 500–600 undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange between scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines.

In addition to lectures, panel discussions, poster sessions and Master Classes, the programme featured new formats including Agora Talks, Science Walks, a Life Lecture and Laureate Lunches.


Throughout the week, participants discussed themes such as the circadian clock, personalised medicine, genetic engineering, the role of science in a ‘post-factual era’ and issues around scientific publishing practices. 


The Council and the Foundation feel committed to share the enthusiasm that characterises the annual encounters between Nobel Laureates and young scientists with the general public. It is an integral part of the mission to reach out beyond the meetings at Lindau and involve society in the dialogue on the importance of education, science and research.



The Lindau Science Trail

On the Lindau Science Trail, explorers big and small can learn more about discoveries that have been honoured with the Nobel Prize. In total, the Science Trail comprises 18 knowledge pylons, 15 are located on the island of Lindau, three on the mainland. 

As part of the ‘Mission Education‘, the Lindau Science Trail makes the ‘Nobel knowledge’ freely available to everyone at all times and serves as a permanent embodiment of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The Science Trail can therefore be followed not only by those living in and around the picturesque city of Lindau; visitors from all over the world can go on their very own journey of discovery. There is a special children’s section on every pylon that awakens the enthusiasm for science even in the smallest researchers. 


The Lindau Science Trail was made possible through the support of the city of Lindau and the Prof. Otto Beisheim Stiftung.

The Lindau Science Trail App

The app expands the Lindau Science Trail and makes it accessible for everyone, even for those who are not able to visit Lindau. They can discover the knowledge pylons virtually. Users in Lindau profit from special features: at six different pylons, virtual Nobel Laureates explain why they have received the Nobel Prize. With numerous quiz questions, the app also gives the opportunity to test the freshly acquired knowledge.
