The Falling Walls Lab (FWL) is an international forum for the next generation of outstanding innovators and creative thinkers. Its aim is to promote exceptional ideas and to connect promising scientists and entrepreneurs from all fields on a global level. Participants get the opportunity to present their research work, business model, or initiative to peers, a high-calibre jury made up of experts from academia and business, and the general public – in 3 minutes each.
Candidates from all areas of knowledge can apply. This year, given the context of social isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all stages of the event, including the presentation, will be in a virtual environment.
The author of the best research project, business plan or social initiative is guaranteed a place on the Falling Walls Remote 2020: The Breakthroughs of the Year (held exceptionally online this year).
Who may apply?
The competition is open to students, entrepreneurs, early-career researchers, & academics of all disciplines.
