The Falling Walls Lab Australia 2017 is an inspiring and innovative forum for young researchers. The Lab provides a platform for 25 excellent young researchers and social scientists, academics, entrepreneurs and professionals from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Island Forum (PIF) Nations to present their research work, business model, innovative project, social initiative or idea in front of peers and a distinguished audience from academia and business. It is fast-paced and challenging: each participant has just 3 minutes on stage.
The Lab is hosted by the Australian Academy of Science and is supported by the Falling Walls Foundation in Berlin, the German Foreign Office, the German Australian Chamber for Industry and Commerce (GACIC), the Royal Society Te Apārangi, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany Wellington, as well as a range of government and industry sponsors.
