Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

The 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will take place from 28 June to 3 July 2015. The aim of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is to encourage the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists, reinforce international networks, and inspire both young researchers and Nobel laureates. The meetings are dedicated alternately to chemistry, physics, and medicine or physiology. Every five years, the meetings are interdisciplinary in nature, and that is the case this year. Meetings in the economic sciences have taken place every two years since 2004. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings began organising this event in 1951. The Academy has participated since 2008.
