Comment of the Day
“This panel and discussion has been excellent, as a young scientist who happens to be a Black woman in the US. I feel like science has been discouraging to people who look like me, and I think discussions like these need to be more frequent and need to be followed by action.”

BM @AnjaKarliczek hat #LINOSD eröffnet: „Die Tagungen d. NobelpreisträgerInnen zeigen, wie wichtig der internationale Austausch in d. Wissenschaft ist. Die Herausforderungen auf der Erde sind so groß, dass wir sie nur in gemeinsamer weltweiter Kraftanstrengung bewältigen können." pic.twitter.com/PVWqqg6N9O— BMBF (@BMBF_Bund) June 28, 2020
Happy to be part of the @lindaunobel first ever Online Science Days.Though all #LINO70 young scientists would’ve not wished for anything more than being currently in #Lindau , COVID-19 gave us a 1 in a lifetime opportunity of being invited to @lindaunobel for 2 consecutive years. pic.twitter.com/TcggZUSN9n— د.مروة شمو | Dr. Marwa Shumo (@MarwaShumo) June 28, 2020

The rule is: You can only take part once in a lifetime, unless you are a #Nobel laureate. But this year is an exception! pic.twitter.com/PbSYHaBSnh
Science-based problem solving is an essential part of our Sustainable In a Generation plan. So from June 28-July 1 we’ll be following @Lindaunobel’s #LINOSD talks on how science can be used to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues.
