The FNR is pleased to announce the Call for talented young researchers to participate as Luxembourg delegates at the 71st edition of the renowned Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany. The meeting takes place from 26 June – 1 July 2022, and is dedicated to Chemistry. Deadline to apply is Thursday, 21 October 2021.
The meeting will see Nobel Laureates in chemistry congregate in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists and researchers. Approximately 600 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 specialised research topics and on ‘science in 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 researchers’ life, to find inspiration from one another and to connect through ideas and friendship.
Who can apply
The present Call is open to:
- Candidates of Luxembourg origins (Luxembourg nationality or Luxembourg residence for 5+ years)
- Non-Luxembourgers who conduct their studies/research work predominantly at a Luxembourg-based institution.
Candidates must be under the age of 35, and at Masters, PhD or early Postdoc level, in the field of Chemistry. Please refer to the document in section ‘Selection process’ for more detailed information about the selection criteria of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
