As the expenditures for organising the meetings are only partly covered by the participation fees that are defrayed by academic partner institutions and supporters, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings depend on additional funding by public authorities, the corporate sector, as well as charitable institutions and benevolent individuals.
Fellowships for young scientists
By funding a fellowship programme for young scientists, supporters can enable the participation of those in need of financial backing.
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings gladly accept donations earmarked for specific purposes. This kind of support is indispensable for financing various projects like exhibitions, science communication activities, or publications, to name only a few of the numerous options.
Donations in kind
Organising a one-week meeting includes providing transportation, IT services, catering, conference materials and much more, in effect everything that is necessary for a smooth and pleasant participation experience. Thus, donations in kind are an essential form of support.
Contributions to the Foundation´s endowment
With its endowment, the Foundation is a mainstay of the financing of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. Contributions to the Foundation’s endowment warrant and enhance the scope of action for organising the annual meetings as well as the outreach programme – in short, the Mission Education. In accordance with its guidelines, the Foundation gratefully accepts private or business donations; these donations are tax-deductible.
In addition to the above mentioned opportunities of supporting the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, supporters may discuss customised forms of funding. Nikolaus Turner, member of the boards of Council and Foundation, i.e. treasurer of the Council and managing director of the Foundation, gladly provides information on the funding opportunities.
