Master, PhD and Postdocs – apply now to attend the 2017 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting!

The FNR is pleased to announce the call for talented young researchers to participate as Luxembourg delegates at the 67th Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany. The meeting, which takes place from 25 to 30 June 2017, is dedicated to chemistry and strongly related disciplines. Deadline to apply is Monday, 24 October.

The meeting will see around 30 Nobel Laureates congregate in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists and researchers. Approximately 400 excellent young researchers from all over the globe will get the unique chance to participate in the meeting.

About the programme

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.

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 to get valuable insight into the scope of a researcher’s life, to find inspiration from one another and to connect through ideas and friendship.
