The 2015 Interdisciplinary Meeting with Nobel Laureates from the fields of physics, physiology or medicine and chemistry
Since 1951, Nobel Laureates in chemistry, physics, and physiology/medicine convene annually in Lindau, Germany, to have open and informal meetings with students and young researchers. The Laureates lecture on the topic of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal, small-group discussions with the students in the afternoons and some evenings. In addition to this valuable interaction, the participants enjoy the picturesque island city of Lindau. This medieval city—rich in central European culture—is located at the eastern end of Lake Constance, just north of the Swiss Alps, at the common border of Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.
Students and young researchers are nominated and selected by several sponsoring agencies and organizations.
These students will travel to Lindau to participate in discussions with the Nobel Laureates, as well as other graduate students and junior researchers from around the world.
Transportation, lodging and registration expenses are arranged and paid for by the sponsoring agencies. Participants meet for an orientation meeting prior to the start of the Lindau Meeting. A student awardee will be committed to travel from approximately June 25, 2015, until July 4, 2015. The final dates will be determined at a later date.
