Unbelievable that this was already the last day of the Online Science Days – mainly dedicated to discussions on scientific practice and careers in science. The talks by Peace Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi and Literature Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka represented a special highlight and made our last day even more interdisciplinary.
Quotes of the Day
“We have globalised markets and economies, and that’s okay, but this is the time to globalise compassion!“
“If an experiment goes according to your plan, it’s not science“
Sir Konstantin S. Novoselov
“You don’t have to know everything, you just have to know one thing that others didn’t know before”
Picture of the Day
Countess Bettina Bernadotte in the conversation with our dear friend, Nobel Laureate Edmond H. Fischer, in which he commented: “At Lindau, they all speak the language of science“.
Comments of the Day
“I hope to see you in person next year in Lindau”
Ingrid Wünning Tschol
“I think the world would be better if scientists had more kids, but we need to get better at giving people space to start a family without jeopardizing their careers. Because this is what it feels like currently for a female academic (at least for me).”

Today’s debate on careers in academia at #LINOSD @lindaunobel was truly amazing and inspiring! I particularly liked the idea conveyed by Serge Haroche (Physics Nobel Prize 2012): “You don’t need to know everything. You need to know just one thing that no one else knows.” pic.twitter.com/NOhFEZwQiE— Dr Eugene Sachkou (@DrSachkov) July 1, 2020
