International Falling Walls Lab

is traditionally an international three-day annual conference held in Berlin and inspired by the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989. The question of every Falling Walls gathering is: Which walls will fall next? The Falling Walls conference fosters discussion on research and innovation and promotes the latest scientific findings among a broad audience from all parts of society.

The goal of the is to advance scientific and entrepreneurial visions, and to initiate and promote exchange between outstanding talents and innovative thinkers across disciplines. It is an international forum for the next generation of outstanding innovators and creative thinkers that takes place in over 55 countries annually, where local Falling Walls Labs showcase the quality, diversity and passion of their region’s most innovative minds. The Lab is a challenging and inspiring platform for emerging bright individuals, giving them an exceptional opportunity to become the next big success story in innovation.

This year the Falling Walls Conference has changed format and is now Falling Walls Remote 2020: Breakthroughs of the Year. It will shift from a series of meetings and one conference with a limited number of speakers and topics to a global showcase that gathers, celebrates and discusses a much broader set of breakthroughs in science and society. In place of the traditional Lab finale, winners of the local Falling Walls Labs will have their pitch video shared on the Falling Walls social platforms. From these videos, a panel of judges will select 10 finalists who will take part in the international digital live event on 4 November 2020. One presenter will then be awarded the Breakthrough Winner of the Year title in the Emerging Talents Category on pitching their breakthrough project along with nine other luminaries on the grand stage of the digital live event Falling Walls Day (9 November 2020) in front of an audience of industry leaders, decision-makers, investors, and international media representatives.

The distinguished jury will be chaired by Academy President, Professor John Shine. The Academy will award a prize of $1000 to the three presenters who place first, second and third. They will also receive a professional video created by the Academy’s own production team.
