Falling Walls Venture will be hosted as a digital event this year as part of Falling Walls Remote 2020.
From July to October, we will continuously announce the finalists and display their videos and make their outstanding work recognised to foster a scholarly and public debate about the contribution of science to society – via social media, newsletters and on our growing library at falling-walls.com, as well as on the platforms of our partners.
At the beginning of November, Falling Walls Venture will then hold an online event as part of Falling Walls Remote 2020. The online event will recognise and discuss the ten respective winners, as identified by a distinguished jury. At the end of the day, the Falling Walls Science Start-up Breakthrough of the Year 2020 will be selected (but will not be announced before 9 November 2020).
On 9 November 2020, the anniversary of the historic fall of the Berlin Wall, the ten Falling Walls Breakthroughs of the Year (one per category) will be made public, and the people and institutions who made them possible will be honoured in a live digital session. In this event, a “Global Circle“ of distinguished world leaders will also discuss the post-corona agendas of the various fields. All material will be made available permanently and for free on our new falling-walls.com library to allow yearlong and global access and inspiration to the most outstanding science based start-ups around the world.
