Falling Walls Lab NY Pitch Competition - Call for Applications!

The Falling Walls Lab gives young researchers and entrepreneurs a stage to share their innovative ideas or projects in front of their peers and a distinguished jury. Local Labs take place globally throughout the year, and each local winner qualifies for competition in the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin and for participation in the Falling Walls Conference on November 8 and 9, respectively. Annually, the Lab precedes the Falling Walls Conference at which 20 world-class scientists from across the globe present their current breakthrough research to answer the question “Which walls are the next to fall?” on the day of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
