Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Each year the Lindau Foundation organizes 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, PhD 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 all natural science disciplines. Meetings focusing on the economic sciences take place every three years.

From 26 June to 1 July 2022 the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will take place on chemistry.


2022: Chemistry.

Who is it for?

Promising young scientists (not older than 35 years) in the fields of chemistry.
