Each year since 1951, Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine have been meeting in Lindau, Germany, to discuss major issues of importance to their fields with students from around the world. The meetings include lectures by the Nobel Laureates, round-table discussions and informal small-group meetings with the Nobel Prize winners. The DST has been sending a group of students / young researchers to these meetings, since 2001.
It is planned to send a group of Indian Students and Scientists to the 60th Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Students during 27 June- 2 July 2010, which is in the Interdisciplinary areas.
Applications are invited from bright and young students and researchers in these fields of natural sciences for availing this DST-DFG award. The lectures and discussions are at a level appropriate for students/researchers in their early research careers. More details of the meeting could be seen at www.lindau-nobel.de
