On the 30th anniversary of the Berlin Wall, the Falling Walls Conference was held in the German capital on November 9th, 2019.

Since 2009, this annual conference aims to figuratively break down walls and overcome borders by inviting the world's leading researchers to present their latest breakthroughs and solutions to global challenges; including climate, energy, health, nutrition and sustainable business.

The DAAD is a key academic partner that aids in the preliminary decision process for the Falling Walls Lab, recently selecting 40 finalists from across the globe for this Berlin event.

"We are pleased to support the conference again this year with our global network and our German centres for research, science and innovation, to bring excellent, young researchers to Berlin," - DAAD President Prof. Dr. Margret Wintermantel.
