The Lindau Declaration 2020, first suggested by Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn during the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting 2018, is now open for debate, changes and amendments. The appeal aims to get wide-spread support for a new approach to global, sustainable, cooperative open science. It will be officially signed by Nobel Laureates and published during the interdisciplinary Lindau Meeting 2020. Join the discussion here.

On Sunday, the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to physics has been officially opened. For the next five days, 39 Nobel Laureates and 580 international young scientist will gather at Lake Constance to discuss current scientific topics such as laser physics, gravitational waves and dark matter. The Lindau Meeting will close on Friday with the traditional Baden-Württemberg Boat Trip to Mainau Island. All lectures and discussions can be watched in our mediatheque.
The young scientists for the Master Classes and the Poster Session at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting have been selected. Out of 135 applications, the Nobel Laureates Albert Fert, Carl E. Wieman, Serge Haroche & David J. Wineland and Brian P. Schmidt have selected 14 young scientists who will have a chance to present their work during one of four Master Classes.
Based on 300 applications, 30 young scientists have been selected to present their work at the Poster Flashes and Poster Session – and to enter the poster contest. For the first time, a number of further qualified young scientists will have the chance to show their posters in a digital format during the meeting week. Like last year, the applications were pre-evaluated by Lindau Alumni peer reviewers.
A new Nobel Lab 360° is ready to be explored. In this virtual tour, 2014 Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine May-Britt and Edvard Moser invite us to their laboratory at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience where they investigate how the brain creates time and location. Learn more about their research and get to know their students as well as Ra(t)vissant-the-Rat.
The submission period for both the Poster Sessions and the Master Classes is now closed. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has received more than 420 applications this year. 135 young scientists have applied for the unique chance to profoundly discuss their research with Nobel Laureates in one of four Master Classes. Out of almost 300 applicants, 30 young scientists will be selected to present their work at the Poster Flashes and Poster Sessions during the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
Both the Master Classes and the Poster Session are established components of the meeting programme as ways to share and support the young scientists’ research. Like last year, the applications will now be pre-evaluated by a group of Lindau Alumni peer reviewers.
Our newest, three-part series of Mini Lectures sheds light on the topic vaccines. Learn more about the defense systems of our immune system and how vaccinations help prevent serious illnesses. The short videos also feature clippings from lectures by Nobel Laureates Bruce Beutler, Rolf Zinkernagel and Aaron Ciechanover.
