The Falling Walls Lab is an inspiring and interdisciplinary format for oustanding talents and innovative thinkers.
The Falling Walls Lab is an international forum, which aims at building and promoting interdisciplinary connections between excellent academics, entrepreneurs and professionals from all fields. All participants get the opportunity to present their research work and business model to peers and a distinguished jury consisting of experts from academia, research institutions and business – in 3 minutes each.
The Falling Walls Lab is organised by the Falling Walls Foundation and generously supported by A.T. Kearney (Founding Partner) and Festo (Global Partner).
After a successful kick-off at the Falling Walls Conference in 2011, the Falling Walls Lab as a challenging, fast-paced format was subsequently brought to numerous cities worldwide. In 2016, 50 Falling Walls Labs will take place in 45 different countries.
The winners of the international Labs travel to the Lab Finale in Berlin (Germany) on 8 November. 100 innovators receive the opportunity to present their work to a renowned jury and an A.T. Kearney Scholarship to attend the Falling Walls Conference, where they meet the world’s movers and shakers of science, business and the industry.
