Personalized medicine, genetic engineering, the role of science in a ‘post-factual era’ and issues around scientific publishing practices—even if you are not a scientist, these issues have importance in shaping our modern world and lives of everybody. And those are the hottest topics of this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureates Meetings, held during June 24th-29th.

Once every year, the next generation of leading scientists from all over the world have a chance to meet Nobel Laureates in Lindau. This year, 600 undergraduates, Ph.D. students, and post-doc researchers will meet 39 Nobel laureates in a series of lectures and events.

In addition to lectures, panel discussions, poster sessions and master classes, the program will feature new formats including Agora Talks, Science Walks, a Life Lecture and Laureate Lunches. Started last Sunday with an opening ceremony and a concert, the Meetings scientific activities launched next day with a breakfast on the International Day. This year, the International Day dedicated to China and developing cross-cultural stronger science leadership. You can head to the official website to see the Nobel laureates talks and be in the know.

个性化医学、基因工程、科学在“后现代”中的作用以及围绕科学出版实践等问题——即使您不是科学家,这些问题对塑造我们现代世界和每个人的生活中都具有重要意义。这些都是今年6月24日至29日举行的林道诺贝尔奖得主大会上最热门的话题。

每年,来自世界各地的下一代顶级科学家都有机会在林道与诺贝尔奖得主见面。今年有600名本科生、博士生和博士后研究员将在一系列讲座和活动中与39位诺贝尔奖得主见面。

除了讲座、小组讨论会、海报会议和大师班之外,该项目还将推出新的形式,包括Agora讲座、科学漫步、生活讲座和获奖者午餐。从上周日举行的开幕式和音乐会开始,科学会议在第二天的国际日的早餐中启动。今年,国际日专注中国和发展跨文化、更强的科学领导力。您可以前往官方网站了解诺贝尔奖获得者的谈话内容。
