Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Each year the Lindau Foundation organises a six-day meeting that brings together dozens of Nobel laureates and hundreds of outstanding young scientists from more than fifty countries. The Academy nominates Dutch students and post-docs to attend the meetings. The Lindau Committee selects the participants.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are intended to help build international networks and inspire younger generations of scientists to excel in their fields. The programme includes lectures by Nobel laureates, plenary discussions, workshops and social events.

The meetings are dedicated alternately to chemistry, to physics, and to physiology or medicine. Every five years the meeting is interdisciplinary in nature. Meetings focusing on the economic sciences take place every three years.

From 24 to 29 June 2018 the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will take place on physiology or medicine.
