Today, #LINO22 offered plenty of options for lively exchange, fruitful discussions and fun social events. The day was kicked off by two partner breakfasts, followed by the Nobel Laureates’ lectures and Agora Talks. Later, young scientists and Nobel Laureates had the opportunity to interact even closer in the Open Exchange sessions and Science Walks. During our Next Gen Science sessions young scientists took centre stage and presented their own research to the audience. At this very moment, the International Get-Together hosted by the United Kingdom concludes the day.
Quote of the Day
“Of course, I seem to be special because I’m the third woman [to win the Nobel Prize in Physics]. But the other way that makes me special is that I won the Nobel Prize for what I did as a graduate student.”
Donna Strickland, Nobel Laureate

Blog Post of the Day
Our blog post of the day deals with trust in science and especially trust in chemistry. On the basis of yesterday’s Panel Discussion, science writer Ben Skuse outlines the positions of yesterday’s panellists on how science needs to evolve in order to strengthen society’s trust in science.
Figure of the Day: 90
The exchange across generations, disciplines and cultures is at the very heart of the Lindau Meetings. Thus, we are exited that young scientists from 90 different countries are joining us for #LINO22.
Our video of the day shows the Agora Talk by Nobel Laureate Louis J. Ignarro. He shared a very personal insight into his life with the young scientists today by talking about his childhood, his career and the moment he was told about his Nobel Prize.
Over the course of the next days, we will keep you updated on the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting with our daily recaps. The idea behind it is to bring to you the day’s highlights in a blink of an eye. The daily recaps will feature blog posts, photos and videos from the mediatheque.
