The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are a globally-recognized forum which has been bringing Nobel prizewinners and the world's most promising young scientists together since 1951. The week-long, annual event takes place in Lindau, set on the banks of Lake Constance between Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The meetings consist of panel discussions, lectures, seminars and social events.

This year's meeting was an interdisciplinary event bringing together young researchers from all continents and 61 Nobel Laureates in physiology, medicine, physics and chemistry. Following more than 30,000 applications, 650 young researchers were selected to participate in the meetings that took place from 27th June - 2nd July 2010.
