York's brightest and best compete to challenge science and society with their innovative ideas and research.
Using the metaphor of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Falling Walls Labs invite Bachelor and Master students, PhD candidates, postdocs, research staff and alumni to articulate how their ideas can contribute to the fall of intellectual, societal and scientific walls.
Falling Walls Lab York
Falling Walls Lab York is an independently organised event where the winners go on to compete in the prestigious international Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin.
About Falling Walls Labs
The Falling Walls Lab is an interdisciplinary format to showcase the next generation of top researchers, developed and hosted annually by the Falling Walls Foundation in Berlin on 8 November. In three-minute talks, outstanding talents and innovative thinkers share their research projects, business models and social initiatives with an interdisciplinary audience and jury.
Academic institutions worldwide are invited to host their own Falling Walls Lab and to send their winner/s to the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin.
