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.
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 or 26, 2014 until July 5 or 6, 2014. The final dates will be determined at a later date.
During the meeting, the Laureates lecture on the topics of their choice related to medicine/physiology and related biological sciences 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, which is located at the eastern end of Lake Constance, just north of the Swiss Alps. Located at the common border of Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, the medieval city is rich in central European culture.
The program is administered by ORAU.
