64th Nobel Laureate Meeting_

The Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) hereby announces the call to pre-select two talented young researchers to participate as Luxembourg delegates at the

64th Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany, 29 June – 4 July 2014.

Each year, ca. 30 Nobel Laureates congregate in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists and researchers. Approximately 550 young researchers from all over the globe will get the unique chance to participate in the meeting.

The 2014 Lindau Meeting is dedicated to physiology/medicine and related disciplines.

The programme features a broad variety of content including lectures on the significance of Nobel Prize winning research, presentations of latest research findings, talks on specialized research topics and on “science & society” issues, such as global health, the challenges to medical care in developing countries or future research approaches to medicine. The aim of the meetings’ various sessions and social activities is determined by the guiding principle “Educate. Inspire. Connect.” The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting thus provides ample opportunities for young researchers to learn from outstanding scientists and get valuable insight into the scope of a researcher’s life, to find inspiration from one another and to connect through ideas and friendship.
