An opportunity for young scientists to attend Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) in partnership with the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is supporting early career scientists to attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are scientific conferences that take place every year in Lindau, Germany. Nobel Laureates convene to meet with outstanding young scientists from all over the world. The aim is to foster interactions between scientists of different generations, cultures and disciplines. The meetings are based on the principle of dialogue and the different sessions are designed to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience among the Nobel Laureates and young scientists.

The meetings rotate around the three Nobel Prize disciplines of Chemistry, Physics and Physiology and Medicine. An interdisciplinary meeting revolving around all three natural sciences is held every five years. In addition, the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years.

Young participants to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are recruited from among (1) undergraduate students, (2) masters and doctoral students and (3) young postdoctoral scientists in the three natural and economic sciences.

Early career scientists are invited to apply to register their interest to attend the:

  • The 71st Meeting of Nobel Laureates (Chemistry), taking place from 26 June – 01 July 2022. This call is an invitation to young African scientists in the fields of Chemistry and closely related disciplines. The full call is here.
