Each year, academic institutions are invited to host their own Falling Walls Lab and to showcase the quality, diversity, and passion of their region’s most innovative minds. The most intriguing presenters of the locally hosted Falling Walls Labs travel to the Lab Finale in Berlin, Germany on 8 November. 100 Finalists present their work in front of a distinguished jury and showcase their solutions for today’s pressing challenges. All finalists win a ticket to attend the Falling Walls Conference where they meet the world’s movers and shakers of science, business, and policy-making. The three winners of the Lab Finale in Berlin are awarded the “Falling Walls Young Innovator of the Year” title, prize money, and get to pitch their idea once again on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference.
