Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Each year the Lindau Foundation organises a six-day meeting that brings together thirty Nobel laureates and five hundred outstanding young scientists from more than fifty countries. The Academy submits the names of the Dutch students and post-docs selected to attend the meetings to the Lindau Committee.

The meetings are dedicated alternately to chemistry, to physics, and to medicine/physiology. Every five years the meeting is interdisciplinary in nature. Meetings focusing on the economic sciences have taken place every three years since 2004. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings began organising events in 1951. The Academy has participated since 2008.

The programme includes lectures by Nobel laureates, plenary discussions, and workshops. The social programme is another important aspect. The meetings help build international networks and inspire younger generations of scientists to excel in their fields.

The 6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences will take place from 22 to 26 August 2017.
