The FNR is pleased to announce that one young promising researcher from Luxembourg is among the 600 young scientists selected by the Lindau Selection Committee to attend the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. The 2019 Meeting, dedicated to physics, takes place from 30 June – 5 July in Lindau, Germany and will see the gathering of 40 Nobel Prize Laureates in Physics.
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings take place every year since 1951 and are designed as a forum for exchange, networking and inspiration. In Lindau, excellent young researchers meet the most acclaimed scientists of their field.
The young scientists selected for 2019 are outstanding undergraduate students, graduate students and post-docs under the age of 35, conducting research in the field of physics. They have successfully passed a multi-stage international selection process. More than 130 academic partners worldwide – academies, universities and foundations – nominated the candidates for participation.
The candidate from Luxembourg, who successfully passed a multi-step international selection process (incl. a pre-selection by the FNR), and whose attendance is co-funded by the FNR, is Hannah Rana, PhD candidate in the Space Cryogenics Group, Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, UK.
About her current project, Hannah says:
“My research project entails theorising, building, and testing a novel design of a spacecraft Pulse Tube cryocooler. The cooler will be used on imaging instruments and detectors for astrophysics missions.”
