Lindau Guidelines 2020

The Lindau Guidelines 2020, first suggested by Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, aim to get wide-spread support for a new approach to global, sustainable, cooperative open science. Until their publication during the Lindau Meeting 2020, the guidelines are open for debate, changes and amendments.

 

Join the Discussion

While formulated with basic research as their primary focus, the principles and goals can apply to all types of science. The Lindau Guidelines draw upon, refer to and support various already existing initiatives. They are a call to widely support new ways in science. The Lindau Guidelines currently consist of 10 goals, which are supported by its signatories.

 

There have already been two socio-political appeals in the longstanding history of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, each presented on Mainau Island, the traditional venue of the last meeting day. The Mainau Declaration 1955 was an appeal against the use of nuclear weapons. During the 65th Lindau Meeting 2015, 36 Nobel Laureates initially signed the Mainau Declaration on Climate Change as an urgent warning of the consequences of global warming.

Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Once every year, around 30-40 Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 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.

Outreach

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.
