What happens when 100 young thought leaders who want to change the world come together? 

The Falling Walls Lab gives young researchers and entrepreneurs a stage to share their innovative ideas or projects in front of their peers and a distinguished jury. The Falling Walls Lab Boston is one of over 50 labs taking place worldwide this year. The winners of each lab qualify for the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin on November 8 and are invited to attend the Falling Walls Conference on November 9. During their five days-long stay they will get in touch with the German research landscape and network with entrepreneurs, scientists and peers.

Annually, the Lab precedes the Falling Walls Conference at which 20 world-class scientists from across the globe present their current breakthrough research to answer the question “Which walls are the next to fall?” on the day of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To help spread the news of the Falling Walls Lab Boston, we would greatly appreciate if you could forward our call for applications to emerging researchers and professionals within your and your institution’s network.
