Event is open to ideas

Young researchers are being invited to share inspiring ideas that can change the world.

An event hosted by the University this summer is looking for 20 people aged 35 or under with bold initiatives that could have a positive impact on society.

High profile judges

The Falling Walls Lab - which takes place on 29 July - is aimed at academics, entrepreneurs and professionals.

They will have three minutes to pitch their research or business idea to a high profile panel of judges.

An interested audience of academics and representatives from business and policy organisations will also be present.

Falling Walls Foundation

The University is hosting the event on behalf of the Falling Walls Foundation, an organisation based in Berlin.

The Falling Walls name was inspired by the Berlin Wall coming down. It is a symbol of breaking down barriers and creating connections across borders.

International finale

There will be a chance to network during the event and the best presenter will have the chance to speak at the international Lab Finale in Berlin on 8 November.

Applications open

Applications are open until 31 May and will be reviewed in early June.

There will also be specialist pitching and presentation training available in late June.
