Désormais, les membres de l'AJSPI peuvent demander une bourse pour assister au prochain meeting des Nobel qui se déroulera à Lindau (Allemagne) du 26 juin au 1er juillet. Cette bourse prend en charge les frais d'hébergement et de transport. Vous avez jusqu'au 4 avril pour postuler.
66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting at Lindau (Germany) 26 June – 1 July 2016
30 Nobel Laureates and Vinton Cerf (ACM A.M. Turing Award 2004) have confirmed their participation in this unique meeting that will be dedicated to physics. They will meet approximately 400 aspiring undergraduates, PhD students, and post-docs from 80 countries. Numerous lectures, panels, discussion sessions, and master classes, as well as a diverse programme of social functions and events will account for an inspiring week of exchange and networking.
Journalists interested in covering the meeting may now apply for funding of their travel and accommodation. Besides participating in the programme events, journalists may mingle with the meeting participants, arrange interviews and visit 1-4 press talks (panel discussions featuring Nobel Laureates and young scientists with subsequent Q&A round).
AJSPI members – employed as well as freelance science journalists – interested in covering the Lindau Meeting are eligible to apply for funding of their travel and accommodation. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will cover the costs of a return-flight in economy class to a nearby international airport (transfers not included) and a three-night’s stay at a hotel in or around Lindau (additional nights may be booked at one’s own expense). Additional expenses, e.g. train tickets/taxi costs/boarding/etc., will not be refunded.
Please send your application consisting of a short CV and a motivation letter indicating your specific journalistic interests by email to the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting by 4 April 2016 (deadline).

Since 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have been bringing together the most esteemed scientists of their times with outstanding young scientists from all over the world. The meetings focus alternately on physiology/medicine, physics, chemistry, and economic sciences.
Every summer some dozens of Nobel Laureates and approximately 400 young scientists from about 80 countries meet in the Southern German town of Lindau for one week – to learn from each other, to exchange knowledge, ideas, and experience, to share their enthusiasm for science, and to make valuable new contacts. The young scientists have to pass a multi-step international selection process in order to get the once-in-alifetime opportunity to participate in a Lindau Meeting. They stand at the beginning of their careers and strive for excellence in their fields.
In Lindau, lectures, discussion sessions, panels, and science master classes account for the major part of every meeting programme. But the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deliberately offer an opportunity for inspiration and reflections, for personal encounters and intense talks – in that they distinguish themselves from common scientific conferences. Alongside cutting-edge research, universally important issues like sustainability or the responsibility of scientists in and for the society are of utmost significance for the meetings.
The meetings are organised jointly by the Council founded in 1954 and the Foundation established in 2000. However, they originate from an initiative of the two Lindau physicians Franz Karl Hein and Gustav Wilhelm Parade, and Count Lennart Bernadotte, a member of the Swedish royal family residing on Mainau Island in Lake Constance. The first meeting in 1951 – a congress of physicians that was attended by seven Nobel Laureates from Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States, and Germany – provided a significant impulse to the European scientific dialogue after World War II. Ever since, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have evolved into an international forum for scientific debate on issues of global importance, gaining many partners and supporters around the world.
The leitmotif “Educate. Inspire. Connect.” not only applies to the meetings, it also determines the societal commitment of the organisers. Numerous projects convey the fascination of science and research, provide food for thought, and stimulate public debates.
