63rd Meeting of Nobel Laureates
The inspiring Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, held annually in Germany since 1951, introduces Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, physiology, medicine and physics to younger generations of scientists. From 2004 to 2012 the Academy supported approximately seven young Australian researchers to attend each year accompanied by a member of Council of the Academy.
The Academy that for eight years from 2013, the Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) will provide SIEF-AAS Fellowships for up to 10 Australian-based early career scientists in specialist discipline years and up to 15 in multidisciplinary years. Funding will also be available for a member of Council or prominent senior Australian scientist to accompany the delegation.
The SIEF-AAS awards include full accommodation and registration costs as well as funding for international travel. Awardees are also be sponsored by the Academy to participate in the Early Career Researchers Program at the 2013 Science at the Shine Dome, where they will have the chance to meet some of Australia’s most highly regarded scientists and attend a pre-meeting briefing to help them make best use of opportunities presented by the Lindau meetings.
A delegation of eight outstanding young Australian scientists will attend the 2013 meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau in June–July 2013. They join an elite group of around 500 students selected from all over the world who will meet with Nobel Prize winners in the field of chemistry. Congratulations to:
