Presenting a fascinating idea, a groundbreaking research project, or a sophisticated business model in three minutes: This is the Karlsruhe Falling Walls Lab, hosted by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on June 16, 2021. It is as part of the EFFEKTE Science Festival taking place in front of the “TRIANGEL Open Space” at Kronenplatz. Emerging talents, innovators, and creative minds from Southwest Germany will compete in presenting their pioneering ideas – among others from life sciences, natural sciences, and environmental sciences or from engineering and healthcare – to a jury and the interested public. The media have been invited to this event. Registration is possible until Monday, June 14, 2021 by email topresseWbs2∂kit edu.

For the second time already, KIT organizes a Falling Walls Lab for the Southwest of Germany. The winner of the competition will participate in the Falling Walls Lab finals in Berlin in November 2021. There, the best “labsters” from all over the world will compete against each other. The top three in these finals will receive prize money and the opportunity to present their topics on the big stage of the Falling Walls Conference. At this conference, which commemorates the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, world-leading researchers will present scientific and societal solutions to global challenges such as climate change, energy production, healthcare, security, and fair and sustainable business. The Falling Walls Lab for Southwest Germany is organized in alternating years by KIT and Heidelberg University.
