Reinhard Genzel at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings
From 27 June – 2 July 2021 the 70th Nobel Laureate Meetings took place in Lindau. Last year’s physics Noble Laureate Reinhard Genzel from MPE was one of the 70 Nobel Laureates who met with some 600 young scientists.
Since 1951, the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provide a globally recognised forum for exchange between Nobel Laureates and young scientists. This year’s programme includes lectures and agora talks, open exchanges as well as panel discussions spanning a wide range of topics from highly topical scientific issues such as pandemics, climate change, and genome editing, to dark matter and energy as well as artificial intelligence – all with relevance for socio-political questions, just like the fundamental questions of trust in science as well as the concept of open science. Reinhard Genzel was this year’s honour guest, please find some interesting links below.
In addition to the Nobel Laureates Meeting, this week Professor Genzel also took part in the (virtual) welcoming reception for new professors by Minister President Markus Söder, where he gave the keynote address.
