Sporty Science: Activities for Young Scientists at #LiNo17

Physical exercise makes your brain work better – evidence-based fact. Besides, it is known to have a splendid social aspect that brings together people of all kinds. Enough reasons for us to get active this year!


Morning Workouts

For the first time ever, we will offer sports activities for young scientists in the mornings of the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to chemistry. From Monday to Thursday, young scientists may join a 45-minute workout from 7.00–7.45 a.m.
To ensure that there will be something for everyone, we plan to have four different sports activities – from cardio-workouts to more relaxing formats.

Preparation for the Day

This new highlight in the meeting programme offers young scientists the chance to get to know each other in an informal setting.
Along the way, they can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Lindau Island: Lake Constance and the Swiss and Austrian Alps on its southern shores. The morning sports are a great way to prepare for the day’s lectures, panel discussions as well as all the other thought-provoking activities of this year’s programme.

All selected participants of the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting may register for the sports activities as part of the Session Registration in mid-May.

We are very much looking forward to it!
