The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have published the extensive programme for the 70th anniversary meeting taking place at the end of June. In this context, journalists worldwide are now invited to completethe accreditation form for the online event.
More than 70 Nobel Laureates from the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry as well as Physiology or Medicine have confirmed their participation. They will decisively shape the nearly 70-hour programme from Sunday, 27 June, to Friday, 2 July 2021, and will exchange thoughts with more than 600 young scientists from around the world.
The agenda includes highly topical scientific issues such as pandemics, climate change, genome editing, dark matter and energy as well as artificial intelligence – all with relevance for socio-political questions, just like the fundamental questions of trust in science as well as the concept of open science.
Structure of the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
The interdisciplinary programme will start on 27 June at 13.30 hrs. CEST with an opening ceremony, followed by a debate on pandemics. Afterwards, three of the 2020 Nobel Laureates will give a lecture: Emmanuelle Charpentier (Chemistry), Reinhard Genzel (Physics) and Harvey J. Alter (Physiology or Medicine).On the following five days, the programme begins early in the morning (local time – from 7 am) and extends into the evening hours (after 8 pm), to cover as many time zones around the world as possible. Like at the event in the “Inselhalle” – where a studio and the online directionroom will be located this year – there are versatile programme formats aiming at a lively exchange between the participants.
