Falling Walls Conference: Unique Access to Breakthrough Research
9 November 2012, Berlin
The Falling Walls Conference is an annual global gathering of forward thinking individuals from 75 countries. Each year, 20 of the world’s leading scientists are invited to Berlin to present their current breakthrough research. The aim of the conference is to connect science with industry, politics, media and culture, to identify trends, opportunities and solutions for global challenges and to make research understandable to a broad audience.
The Falling Walls Lab is an opportunity for excellent young academics and professionals to present their breakthroughs in 3 minutes. A jury (in 2011 headed by Professor Ernst T. Rietschel, former President of the Leibniz Society and Martin Sonnenschein, Managing Director A.T. Kearney Central Europe) awards the best contribution. The first Falling Walls Lab took place in 2011 in Berlin one day prior to the Falling Walls Conference with 100 outstanding talents.
Being part of the Falling Walls Lab will inspire and provide you with insights by other participants, decision makers of enterprises leading in innovation and distinguished representatives of scientific institutions. All in all, the Falling Walls Lab aims at supporting interdisciplinary dialogue and international cooperation, connecting young and senior innovators as well as developing new ways of scientific communication.
The conference is organised by the Falling Walls Foundation, a non-profit charity dedicated to sustain science and humanities, supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research and other outstanding partners.
