Due to the coronavirus pandemic, an in-person international conference this November is no longer feasible. In the interest of continuing our shared dedication to science communication across borders and disciplines, we have decided to go digital in 2020! This year, Falling Walls will shift from a series of meetings and one conference with a limited number of speakers and topics to a global showcase that gathers, discusses, and celebrates a much broader set of breakthroughs in science and society – the Falling Walls Breakthroughs of the Year! Together with our other formats, Falling Walls Lab will bring together some of the brightest minds and most exciting scientific advances globally to inspire a discussion on how science and innovation can contribute to the future state of our world. The Emerging Talents Finalists’ video submissions can already be viewed in our media library!
