The GYA is an nominating partner of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. GYA members Bart Kolodziejczyk (Australia) and Michael Backes (Namibia), as well as young scientist Caner Değer (Turkey) were nominated by the GYA and selected by the Lindau organisation to attend the 2019 meeting.
Once every year, about 30 Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 500-600 undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The meetings focus alternately on physiology and medicine, physics, and chemistry – the three natural science Nobel Prize disciplines. The 2019 meeting will focus on physics.
The scientific programme of each Lindau Meeting is based on the principle of dialogue. The different sessions – lectures, discussions, master classes, and panel discussions – are designed to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience between and among Nobel Laureates and young scientists.
