PhD student Alexander Huck invited to the meeting of Nobel laureates in Lindau

Thursday 12 Jun 08

Alexander will be away from 29 June – 4 July, 2008.



Each year, since 1951, 20 to 25 Nobel Prize Winners accept the invitation to a unique meeting on Lake Constance. Some 500 young students come from all over the world to listen to the Laureates’ lectures and to engage in discussions with them. Intermediaries from universities and research institutions select participants based on strict criteria. Started in 2004, there is an addition to the traditional Lindau Meetings for Nobel Prize Winners in Natural Sciences. Since then the Meeting of Prize Winners in Economic Sciences takes place every two years. More than 350 young and highly qualified economists will be selected and get the opportunity to converse with the Prize Winners


The Laureates give presentations on topics of their choice. Lively round table discussions in plenary sessions include the audience and are defined by interdisciplinary questions. Specially organized student discussions have students gathered around a designated Laureate per group for several hours in the afternoons. Social events bring the scientific newcomers into personal contact with the Nobel Prize Winners. More on:
