The Lindau Meetings
Since 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have been bringing together the most esteemed scientists of their times with outstanding young scientists from all over the world. The meetings focus alternately on physiology or medicine, physics, chemistry, and economic sciences.
Every summer around 30 Nobel Laureates and approximately 600 young scientists from up to 70 countries meet in the Southern German town of Lindau for one week – to learn from each other, to exchange knowledge, ideas, and experience, to share their enthusiasm for science, and to make valuable new contacts. The young participants have passed a multi-step international selection process. They stand at the beginning of their careers and strive for excellence in their fields.
In Lindau, lectures, discussion sessions, panels, and science master classes account for the major part of every meeting programme. But the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deliberately offer an opportunity for inspiration and reflections, for personal encounters and intense talks – in that they distinguish themselves from common scientific conferences. Alongside cutting-edge research, universally important issues like sustainability or the responsibility of scientists in and for the society are of utmost significance for the meetings.
The meetings are organised by the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobelprizewinners Meetings at Lake Constance. However, they originate from an initiative of the two Lindau physicians Franz Karl Hein and Gustav Wilhelm Parade, and Count Lennart Bernadotte, a member of the Swedish royal family residing on Mainau Island in Lake Constance. The first meeting in 1951 – an exchange of physicians with seven Nobel Laureates from Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States, and Germany – provided a significant impulse to the European scientific dialogue after World War II. Ever since, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have evolved into an international forum for scientific debate on issues of global importance, gaining many partners and supporters around the world.
The leitmotif “Educate. Inspire. Connect.” not only applies to the meetings, it also determines the societal commitment of the Lindau Meetings. Numerous projects convey the fascination of science and research, provide food for thought and stimulate public debates.
