Falling Walls Lab New Zealand

Sep 7, 2021 · Wellington, New Zealand
Great Minds. 3 Minutes. 1 Day.

Royal Society Te Apārangi, in collaboration with MBIE, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, would like to invite honoured guests, friends and family, and members of the public to attend Falling Walls Lab New Zealand.

Falling Walls Lab New Zealand is a challenging, inspiring and interdisciplinary format to showcase the next generation of early-career innovators, trailblazers, creators, and visionaries.

In a 3-minute presentation, participants will present their research, business model or initiative, showcasing a breakthrough that creates a positive impact on science and society. All disciplines are welcome: from agriculture, medicine, economics, engineering to social science and the humanities. The event is inspired by the world-changing event of the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989, with the question at every Falling Walls gathering: Which walls will fall next?

Network with fellow innovators from different disciplines, equally passionate and inspired to showcase their solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time.

For 2021, 13 New Zealand-based participants have been selected to present their ideas - come watch them pitch their idea to the Falling Walls Lab New Zealand Jury!
