Watch Live - Falling Walls Lab Queensland 2020!
The Falling Walls Lab asks one question: "Which are the next walls to fall?"
Join us as we watch 10 of Queensland's top researchers and innovators pitch their scientific, technological, economic or social idea to provide the answer.
Study Queensland put the call-out to all postdocs, students, innovators, entrepreneurs, or engineers to represent Queensland at the 2020 Falling Walls conference in Berlin.
Join us Thursday 6 August as they present their work to a jury of distinguished academics and businesspeople.
What is Falling Walls?
Established 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Falling Walls is a global event dedicated to supporting science and the humanities.
In November, innovative minds from around the world will converge* on the birthplace of Falling Walls, Berlin, Germany. Leaders from politics, science, the arts and business gather to discuss global challenges and their innovative responses.
The Falling Walls Lab is a popular part of the conference. Through a three-minute pitch to some of the world’s leading academics and businesspeople, Lab finalists from around the world have a rare audience to which they can share their dream of a better world through science and social change.
