7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences 2021: Invitation to 373 Young Economists – also for Online Science Days 2020
– Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences – #LINOEcon – postponed to August 2021
– 373 Young Economists selected
– Summer 2020: interdisciplinary Online Science Days – #LINOSD
– Online Sciathon 2020 for Young Scientists and Lindau Alumni
373 Young Economists from 60 countries can look forward to two top-class events: the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences in August 2021 and the Online Science Days 2020.
Meeting on Economic Sciences postponed to August 2021
The invitations sent out today to the young economists apply to the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences which brings together young economists and Laureates of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel on Lake Constance in August 2021. Due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences and the interdisciplinary 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on natural sciences, also planned for this summer, were postponed to 2021.
Online Science Days 2020 for interdisciplinary exchange
The invitation sent to the Young Economists is therefore also valid for the Online Science Days 2020, an additional offer this summer. Between 28 June – 1 July 2020, Nobel Laureates, Lindau Alumni and Young Scientists from the disciplines of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine as well as Young Economists will exchange their knowledge and ideas in online lectures and discussions.
In the run-up: Online Sciathon 2020
In the run-up to the online programme, the Young Scientists can experience international and interdisciplinary exchange: with a newly launched “Sciathon” (a variant of a hackathon geared towards science), the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are creating an interactive online competition. Lindau Alumni will play an important role in this in addition to the Young Scientists. Using digital platforms, both groups will work together to develop solutions for a defined scientific topic. If possible, the Young Economists will cooperate with their colleagues from the natural sciences. Thus, particularly sustainable concepts comprising many aspects are to be expected.
International field of participants for the events in 2020/2021
The now invited and notified 373 Young Economists around the globe have successfully completed a multi-stage selection process. The application process involved 144 academic partners of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and – for the German universities in the field of economics – the “Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftliche Fakultätentag” (WISOFT – Association of Economics and Social Sciences Faculties).
