About the Lab

The third Falling Walls Lab Australia will take place on 11 September 2018 at the Shine Dome in Canberra, hosted by the Australian Academy of Science in partnership with the Embassy of Germany in Canberra and the German–Australian Chamber for Industry and Commerce.

Falling Walls Labs take place globally throughout the year, in over 60 countries. The winners of each international Falling Walls Lab qualify for the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin, which is held every year on 8 November.

Falling Walls Lab Australia will be an inspiring innovation forum for 20 young Australian researchers, social scientists, academics, entrepreneurs and professionals across all disciplines. The Lab provides a platform for each participant to present their research work, business model, innovative project, social initiative or idea in just 3 minutes, on stage in front of peers and a distinguished audience from academia and business.

The panel of eminent judges from academia, business, government and finance will select the winner of the Lab. The distinguished jury will be chaired by Dr Alan Finkel AO FAA FTSE, Australia’s Chief Scientist.
