Once every year, 30–40 Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau (Germany) to meet the next generation of leading scientists from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. In 2016, the meeting is dedicated to the field of physics.
The opportunity to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates at Lindau is provided exclusively to outstanding young scientists aged up to 35 – undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers. In order to participate in a meeting, they have to pass a multi-step application and selection process. After making his way through a rigorous selection process, our PhD student Lola Fariñas has been invited to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates at Lindau.
Lola is currently finishing her thesis work about characterisation of vegetal tissues using Resonant Ultrasonic Spectroscopy without contact, which combines not only the field of physics but also biology.
The 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will run from June 26, 2016 to July 1, 2016. The preliminary programme is available online.
