In these extraordinary times, the 2020 Falling Walls conference will be a digital event, and has been completely redesigned to make the most out of remote meetings.
Falling Walls will shift from a series of meetings and one conference with a limited number of speakers and topics to a global showcase that gathers, discusses, and celebrates a much broader set of the most recent breakthroughs in science and society – the Falling Walls Breakthroughs of the Year.
In order to do this, the conference will share thrilling research for a few minutes per day over several weeks, with a global digital meeting on 9 November 2020.
To highlight breakthrough thinking from all over the world, nominations are requested for the most recent breakthroughs in ten categories, from life sciences to science management. Helga Nowotny (Former President of the European Research Council) will serve as overall chair of the juries, and the challenge will be supported by “Springer Nature”.
The nominations period starts immediately and will run to 1 September.
