Second Lindau Online Sciathon to start

Next Friday, 10 September, an opening event at 16.30 hrs. CEST will be the starting signal for intense 48 hours for all participants of the Lindau Online Sciathon 2021. Scientists worldwide will work in 30 groups on their projects. All groups are led by those Lindau Alumni who pitched the respective project idea for the competition. Other Lindau Alumni and young economists selected for the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences (2022) participate in the groups. Find an overview of all projects here.

Based on the principle of a hackathon, in which an IT-oriented group develops a creative software solution within a pre-defined period of time, scientists will address a current scientific problem during the event. The first Lindau Online Sciathon took place in summer 2020. Because of the wide interest and the promising results, the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings decided to host a second edition of the competition.
