Due to COVID 19 and the postponement of the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (Interdisciplinary) until 2021, there will not be a nomination and selection phase in 2020.
All participants originally accepted to the 2020 meeting are invited to attend the 2021 Lindau Meeting. The next nomination process will be in the autumn of 2021 for the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (Chemistry).

Once every year, around 30-40 Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 600 undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines.

The meetings focus alternately on physiology and medicine, on physics, and on chemistry – the three natural science Nobel Prize disciplines. An interdisciplinary meeting revolving around all three natural sciences is held every five years.


Upcoming Lindau Meeting

70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting / Interdisciplinary (28 June – 3 July 2020)

Changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic:
From 28 June – 1 July Nobel Laureates, Lindau Alumni, young scientists and economists gathered for a virtual event, the Online Science Days 2020. As the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting and the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Science had been postponed, the Online Science Days were this years’s virtual alternative for scientific exchange.


Who May Participate?

Excellent undergraduates, master and PhD students, and young post-docs (not older than 35 years), who have not participated in previous Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and who do not have a permanent position yet.

Candidates should study and/or work in Austria; Austrian citizenship is not required.

We only accept applications by young scientists.
