Young Australian scientists win chance to meet Nobel Laureates
14 March 2012
Seven Australian early career researchers have been selected from a highly competitive field to travel to Lindau in Germany to meet and learn from more than 30 Nobel Laureates.
Each year around 550 young scientists are chosen by the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings from over 20,000 nominations made by more than 60 countries.
The Lindau gathering, in early July, is a globally recognised forum for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists. This year’s 62nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is dedicated to Physics and will feature Australia’s most recent laureate, Professor Brian Schmidt – a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.
