Great Minds – 3 Minutes – 1 day (ONLINE EVENT)

Falling Walls Lab Heidelberg

Jun 23 2020

FWLab Graphik

A stage, a great idea and three minutes to present it. This is the FALLING WALLS LAB HEIDELBERG.

The international forum offers emerging talents, innovators and creative minds the opportunity to present their research, ideas or business models.

In the end, a jury from science and business decides which Labster will take part in the final Falling Walls Lab in Berlin on November 8th. There the best Labsters from 100+ events from all over the world compete against each other.

At the international conference in Berlin, 100 leading global researchers will present scientific and social solutions to global challenges such as climate change, energy generation, health, security, fair and sustainable business. The goal is to tear down walls and overcome boundaries: in the mind, in thinking and in acting. The Heidelberg University, together with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), is organizing the Falling Walls Lab for southwestern Germany. Falling Walls Lab Heidelberg will be an online event hosted by Heidelberg University.
