We want to make sure that you have the opportunity to tap into the knowledge and experience in attendance at this year’s conference and build meaningful connections with other attendees; connections that could lead to partnerships, collaborations, friendships! We help you connect with others using Braindate.

First things first: What is a braindate?
 Braindates are 30 min long, one-on-one or small group meetings that you book with other participants based on shared interests. Facilitated on the Braindate platform, you can post topics to discuss and send requests to meet with other participants. Then, you’ll meet up in-person at the event – watch out for the Braindate Lounges on 8 and 9 November. (Here’s a 2-minute video that explains how it works.)

In the days leading up to the event, everyone logs into the Braindate platform to set up their profile, browse topics and post their own, and start scheduling braindates. With topics ranging from Energy Storage to the Power of Empathy to Science Storytelling, braindates are the best way to connect directly with people who have the knowledge that you’re seeking – and to share your own expertise.

It’s simple

What should you share? Think about your life experiences, personal and professional concerns and interests, or anything that you think would be relevant to the attendees of Falling Walls.

Please note that braindates are for everyone; they are not expert presentations, they are conversations centered around topics of mutual interest.

If you’re still unsure, these are some of the most popular topics from Falling Walls 2017 and 2018:

  • What interactive documentaries can offer to science communication
  • Combining Energy Storage and Machine Learning
  • Science diplomacy: shape transatlantic science policy and science communication
  • How to start a social initiative that improves a societal problem
  • Artificial Intelligence: the renAIssance – fact, fiction, or a bit of both?
  • How to use sleep to improve memory in health and disease
  • How to fund science in an intelligent way
