Nobel Prize Winners 2030: A great night in Lindau!

At the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting we brought together 20 selected young scientists with three Nobel laureates (William Kaelin, Dan Shechtman and Avram Hershko) for a night of great science &food, with a view on the beautiful mountains of Austria and Switzerland across the Lake Constance at Lindau.

 

 

 

While we were happy to share what we do at Bayer Foundation, what we really wanted was to learn from these brilliant scientists and ask what topics they thought were deserving the Nobel prize in 2030. Our Nobel laureates and young scientists made their suggestions and then voted for the top three topics!

Suggestions from our early career researchers

Winners of our 2030 Nobel Prizes Challenge:

 

Universal right to reproductive healthcare
Sustainable Chemical Synthesis (Photochemistry & Electrochemistry)
Artificial Tissue

A fantastic selection in our opinion, and we’ll be keeping a close eye over the next few years to see if these predictions come to pass, or perhaps more exciting, if the inspiring young scientists maybe even win a Nobel prize themselves!
