Falling Walls’ Young Innovator Award

Falling Walls is a unique international platform for leaders from the worlds of science, business, politics, the arts and society. It was initiated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Inspired by this world-changing event on November 9, 1989, the question at the centre of each Falling Walls gathering is: Which walls will fall next? Falling Walls fosters discussion on research and innovation and promotes the latest scientific findings among a broad audience from all parts of society

The next Falling Walls event will take place in Berlin on November 8/9, 2014. As part of this, Falling Walls is accepting applications for the 2014 Young Innovators of the Year through to September 21, 2014. Falling Walls Young Innovators are outstanding young talents whose ideas hold the potential to introduce positive change to society, the environment and the world.

Award winners and a further number of applicants will receive scholarships to attend the Falling Walls conference in Berlin on November 9, 2014. This conference  brings together forward thinking individuals from around the globe and will feature presentations by twenty of the world’s leading scientists on their current breakthrough research.
