Quote of the Day
“It was precisely in this spirit that the meetings were founded in 1951: To enable cooperation in science again after the devastating world war, especially and particularly among formerly hostile states.”
Countess Bettina Bernadotte, President of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
