For the fourth year running, AT Kearney and the Falling Walls Foundation (www.falling-walls.com) will host the Falling Walls Lab on 18 September 2015.
The Falling Walls Lab is an exciting event that provides a platform for young researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and professionals to share their breakthrough ideas about how society can address its more complex challenges. In three-minute speeches, twenty young adults will seek to convince a high profile jury of the urgency, power and feasibility of their breakthrough. The winner of this event will then compete in the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin.
The Falling Walls Lab is looking for breakthrough ideas in all sectors, including pharmaceuticals, agriculture, computer science, economics, education, sociology, art, biotechnology and sustainability. In addition to presenting, candidates will have the opportunity to network with investors, business leaders and leading business development organisations.
The Falling Walls Lab poster with full details is attached for your attention.
The application deadline is 14 August 2015.
