Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting Awards

The Irish Research Council, as a strategic partner with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, runs a national selection process. Eligible higher education institutions may nominate up to three researchers at postgraduate and/or postdoctoral level who will be considered by the Council’s panel of international assessors to attend the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.

A maximum of three shortlisted candidates will be nominated to the international selection process, which is conducted by the Lindau Review Panel. This panel makes the final selection from up to 1,500 profiles for every meeting before choosing the top applicants who will receive an invitation to attend. Taking into account the national selection procedures worldwide, in excess of 20,000 young researchers apply to attend each meeting.

Irish Research Council nominees who are successful in the international selection process and receive an invitation to the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will receive an award which comprises €500 to cover their travel expenses for attending the meeting.
