Falling Walls Foundation

Science Reunites Us:

After a fully digital Falling Walls Conference 2020, we look forward to hosting the first in-person event that reunites the science community internationally. We welcome the people who are finding solutions to the greatest challenges of our time back to Berlin on the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

7 November: Falling Walls Pitches
A day of live pitches in the following categories: Emerging Talents (Falling Walls Lab) for the next generation of outstanding innovators. Science Engagement (Falling Walls Engage) for inspiring science engagers. Science Start-Ups (Falling Walls Venture) for the science start-up community.

8 November: Falling Walls Circle – Challenges and Foresight
Our new format to connect science and society. Researchers, policymakers, business leaders, and society discuss the biggest challenges we face and the foresight that scientific breakthroughs can offer.

9 November: Falling Walls Science Breakthroughs of the Year
On the anniversary of the historic fall of the Berlin Wall, the conference provides a stage for outstanding research presented in inspiring presentations. For the 13th time, “the brightest minds on the planet“ (BBC) will showcase their work.
