Starting in 1951, every year about 30 to 40 Nobel Laureates meet up to 600 young scientists (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 the three natural science Nobel Prize disciplines - physiology and medicine, physics, and chemistry.

Every five years, an interdisciplinary meeting revolving around all three natural sciences is held.

Additionally, the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years.
