Daily Recap, Sunday, 28 June 2015
Over the course of the next five days, you’ll receive a daily recap. 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.
Yesterday, the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting started in grand fashion with the festive opening ceremony featuring the entrance of the laureates, German Federal president Joachim Gauck and the welcome address by Countess Bettina Bernadotte.
Video of the day:
This is not the only video from today! You are more than welcome to browse through our mediatheque for more.
Blog post of the day:
Of course, our blog post of the day is the one by William Moerner, who offers us a valuable insight into his “Thoughts on Multidisciplinarity“. It is a real first for our blog to have a Nobel Laureate write an article. A fact we feel very honoured about. Also, Moerner’s article is part of an ongoing public debate on interdisciplinary – it will continue tomorrow with an essay by Nobel laureate Martin Chalfie and on Tuesday with the new edition of our longread series by Jalees Rehman – so stay tuned!
Do take a look at even more exciting blog Posts.
