100 IDEAS, 3 MINUTES, 1 DAY
The Falling Walls Lab is a new challenging, inspiring and interdisciplinary format for young bright minds. It offers the opportunity to excellent young academics and professionals to present their outstanding ideas, research projects and initiatives in 3 minutes. A prestigious jury (in 2011 headed by Professor Ernst T. Rietschel, former President of the Leibniz Society and Martin Sonnenschein, Managing Director A.T. Kearney Central Europe) awards the best participants.
The first Falling Walls Lab took place in 2011 in Berlin one day prior to the Falling Walls Conference with 100 outstanding talents. Thanks to the huge success of the Falling Walls Lab 2011, the Falling Walls Foundation and A.T. Kearney is rolling out the format on a global scale in 2012. The first Qualifying Labs in Zurich, Vienna, Cologne and Munich took place in June and July 2012.
