From 28 June – 1 July the scientific world gathered for the Online Science Days 2020 of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. Normally, the two meetings planned for 2020 would have been held in Lindau, and Germany would have had the pleasure of welcoming hundreds of the world’s best young scientists as well as many Nobel Laureates. 2020 we gathered online instead, for a digital exchange between different generations, cultures, and disciplines.
Nobel Laureates, young scientists and young economists originally selected for participation in the 2020 meetings and the Lindau Alumni from the last 70 years participated in this interactive meeting. Highlights are available in our mediatheque.
You were unable to watch the Online Science Days live? Want to prepare by binge-watching Nobel Laureate lectures from 100 years of Nobel Laureate research? We can help: Our vast media archive „mediatheque“ has hundreds of lectures online – and more. Of course the whole programme of Online Science Days 2020 is covered there!
39 Nobel Laureates discussed a variety of topics with excellent young scientists and senior experts in different sessions. Over the course of four days, from 28 June – 1 July, the Online Science Days presented a packed programme with topics that range from international collaboration to corona, from green chemistry to communicating climate change, and from women in science to the Lindau Guidelines.
The Online Science Days 2020 were not a Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. It is impossible to transfer the magic of a week in Lindau to our online event. But we have done our best to come up with highly interactive formats that offer a wide variety: From talks to debates, from conversations to impressions, from a whole life’s experience of a Nobel Laureate to the hottest science of the next generation.
And there is more…
In the first Lindau Sciathon, 48 groups of ten young scientists entered a 48-madness marathon session to work on a self-selected problem. The highlights were presented during the Online Science Days.
The Lindau Guidelines were a key discussion topic during the Online Science Days. Initiated by Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn in 2018, the guidelines were widely discussed for the first time. All scientists and academic institutions worldwide were invited to join the discussion and support the guidelines.
