We are excited to be part of the project “Once Upon a Try” by Google Arts & Culture – the largest online exhibition on scientific inventions and discoveries. Explore our ‘Sketches of Science’, ‘Nobel Heroes’ and the ‘Nobel Labs 360°’ to find out more about the Nobel Laureates and their research and learn more about the history of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings sent out the letters of acceptance to 580 outstanding undergraduates, PhD students and post-docs from 88 countries today.
From 30 June to 5 July 2019, the young scientists will come together with 42 Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany. This year’s 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is dedicated to physics; key topics are cosmology, laser physics and gravitational waves.
The Lindau Science Trail is now also virtually accessible: An online map guides to the 20 knowledge pylons in Lindau and on Mainau Island that provide profound insights into the groundbreaking research of Nobel Laureates. Panoramic images enriched with multimedia elements ensure an exciting experience. Enjoy the trip on the Virtual Science Trail that has been made possible thanks to the Beisheim Stiftung.
During Graphene Study 2019 in Obergurgl, Austria, the European research initiative Graphene Flagship was presented as a new academic partner of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The winners of the Poster Award during the event got a Flagship scholarship to attend this year’s Lindau Meeting as visiting scientists. From next year on, the Graphene Flagship will be able to nominate young scientists via the official application and selection process.
Graphene will also be a topic during the Science Breakfast at #LINO19.
The Council and Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deeply mourn the loss of Nobel Laureate Manfred Eigen, who sadly passed away on 6 February 2019 at the age of 91. He received the 1967 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for studies of extremely fast chemical reactions.
Manfred Eigen obtained his doctorate from the Georg-August-University of Göttingen in 1951, and joined the Max Planck Institute for Physical Chemistry in 1953. He founded the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen in 1971.
Manfred Eigen participated in 17 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, most recently in 2010. The Council and Foundation extend their deep sympathies to Prof. Eigen’s family.
Yesterday on 20 January, the Nobel Prize Matinee 2019 took place in the Sparkassensaal Lindau. In four presentations, the research of the 2018 Nobel Laureates was explained to an audience of about 200 interested Lindau citizens and friends of the Lindau Meetings. Prof. Henriette Uhlenhaut and Dr. Andreas Brunhart – both Lindau Alumni – presented the recent Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and the The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. The Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry were explained by Prof. Rainer Blatt and Prof. Wolfgang Lubitz, scientific chairpersons of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
The pre-evaluation for the upcoming Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is complete. The application process, which started with an international call for nominations and applications in September 2018, is now in its final stage.
600 selected young physicists will meet more than 30 Nobel Laureates from 30 June–5 July 2019 at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, dedicated to physics.
The Council and Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deeply mourns the loss of Nobel Laureate Roy J. Glauber who sadly passed away on 26 December 2018 at the age of 93. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics 2005 “for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence.” This theory required the development of the laser.
At the age of eighteen, Glauber was recruited to work at Los Alamos, birthplace of the atomic bomb during the Manhattan Project. At the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in 2016, he shared unique memories of these historic events.
Overall, Roy J. Glauber participated in seven Lindau Meetings. The Council and Foundation extend their deep sympathies to his family.
