68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

28 February 2018

Two Croucher scholars have been accepted to attend the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting at Lake Constance from 24 to 29 June.

The selection process for participation at the 2018 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting has been completed. A total of 600 outstanding students, doctoral candidates and post-docs under the age of 35 will attend the meeting at Lake Constance from 24 to 29 June. 

More than 130 academic partners worldwide – including the Croucher Foundation - nominated candidates for participation. Two Croucher scholars, Wendy Wing Sze Yue (Croucher Fellowship 2017) and Leo Tsz Ho Tang (Croucher Fellowship 2016) have been accepted. 

This year’s meeting is dedicated to physiology and medicine. 43 Nobel Laureates and participants from 84 countries will take part in the medicine meeting.

After two years in the temporary venue of the Lindau city theatre, the meetings can now once again be held in the Inselhalle. The reconstruction of the Inselhalle has led to the creation of many new spaces, which also allow parallel sessions and more intimate formats in one place. Thus, the six-day programme will for the first time feature so-called ‘Agora Talks’, in which laureates answer the audience’s questions. In poster flashes and master classes the young scientists will present their research to the Nobel Laureates and their colleagues.

The key topics of the 68th Lindau Meeting are the role of science in a ‘post-factual era’, gene therapy and scientific publishing practices.

Since 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have served to promote exchange, networking and inspiration.
