Few events in the career of a scientist make such a lasting impression as the Lindau Meeting.

The Community of the Lindau Meetings
Every year, Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 600 undergraduates, master students, PhD students, and postdocs from all over the world. When they arrive on Lake Constance, the Young Scientists have passed a competitive, multi-stage application and nomination process. When they leave town on the last day, Young Scientists become Lindau Alumni. Nobel Laureates and Young Scientists – the core of our community – are joined by invited guests, supporters and friends during the meeting week.
In Lindau, the Nobel Laureates shape the scientific programme with their topical preferences. As a result, the meetings provide the opportunity to experience both the professional and the personal side of the Laureates.
