Opening day of the 70th jubilee Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting: Our virtual opening ceremony featured greetings from multiple top-class guests and musical contributions from our versatilely talented young scientists and Lindau Alumni. The academic programme was then kicked off by a panel discussion and the first Lindau lectures of three 2020 Nobel Laureates: Emmanuelle Charpentier (Chemistry), Reinhard Genzel (Physics) and Harvey J. Alter (Physiology/Medicine).
Quote of the Day
“The questions as to whether this scientific progress can also be used to benefit humanity or whether it contains known or potential risks are at least as important as the research findings themselves.”
Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President of the Federal Republic of Germany during his greetings for the opening ceremony
Picture of the Day
Our picture of the day proves what a special and diverse group of highly talented people the Lindau community is: it shows the performance of “Ode to Joy” by the “Lindau Virtual Symphonic Orchestra”, part of our opening ceremony. You can watch their performance on YouTube.
On our YouTube channel, you’ll also find “I Say A Little Prayer” by the “Lindau Virtual Band”, the other musical piece created by the Lindau community, which was part of the opening ceremony as well.
Comment of the Day
“I love the networking, @lindaunobel. So much fun to meet people from diverse backgrounds working in all kinds of research areas not just limited to biology.“
Lukas Heumos, young scientist, via Twitter enjoying the fact that #LINO70 recreates the Lindau Spirit digitally.

It's fantastic that an extensive online programme has been put together for #LINO70 which sadly can't take place in Lindau this year. Additional plus: alumni have been invited to attend the meeting as well – Thank you @lindaunobel and everyone involved for this great opportunity! https://t.co/YvqYkre4A4— Tanja Müller (@tm_brainscience) June 27, 2021

Lindau Guidelines: Goal of the Day

Goal 02: Cooperate Globally on Global Problems
Like the Corona pandemic, which was prominently discussed on the first day of #LINO70, the vast majority of the most pressing problems of today are global in nature: They affect large parts of the world and its population, they do not stop at borders, and they cannot be solved alone. Therefore, scientists, funders and politicians must cooperate globally to increase efficiency, speed, and effectiveness.
The Lindau Guidelines: endorsed by many Nobel Laureates – now open for you to sign!
70 Years Lindau Meetings: Historic Highlight of the Day
From 10 – 14 June 1951, 7 Nobel Laureates and 400 young scientists met in Lindau for the 1st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. It was dedicated to Physiology and Medicine.
Outlook on Tomorrow’s Programme
The first full-length day of #LINO70 will start with partner events and then continue with a morning workout to brace bodies and minds of all participants for a day full of exciting academic and social programme points.
