The closing date for applications is 14 October 2019.
The partnership allows Honoris United Universities to nominate up to 10 (Ten) students from its partnering institutions to attend the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings in Germany. During these meetings, students have the unique opportunity of meeting, listening and interacting with Nobel Laureates across various disciplines. (A Nobel Laureate is a person or organisation awarded the Nobel Prize)
The first of these meetings which takes place from 28 June – 3 July 2020 is dedicated to Chemistry, Physics and Physiology/Medicine, with a particular focus on interdisciplinarity. The second of these meetings in Economic Sciences will take place in August 2020.
In both of these meetings, Nobel Laureates will congregate in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists and researchers. Approximately 600 excellent young researchers from all over the globe will get the unique chance to meet to participate in these meetings. These young participants will be recruited worldwide among (1) undergraduate students, (2) masters and doctoral students and (3) young post-doctoral scientists from the above mentioned fields and related disciplines.
The programmes for both these opportunities feature a broad variety of content including:
- Lectures on the significance of Nobel Prize winning research
- Presentation of latest research findings
- Talks on specialised research topics
The aim of the meetings’ various sessions and social activities is determined by the guiding principle “Educate. Inspire. Connect”. These meetings thus provide ample opportunities for young researchers to learn from outstanding scientists and to get valuable insight into the scope of a researcher’s life, to find inspiration from one another and to connect through ideas and friendship.
