    Dear all,

    Since its first annual meeting on the 20th anniversary of the peaceful fall of the Berlin Wall, the Falling Walls Conference continuously developed into a world forum for science. Some of the most important researchers and thinkers on the planet discuss with world leaders in science, politics, business, and the media a small number of high-caliber breakthroughs, answering the core question of the Falling Walls Conference: "Which are the next walls to fall in science and society?"

    To highlight breakthrough thinking from all over the world, we call for your nominations for the most recent breakthroughs in ten categories, from life sciences to science management. We are delighted that Helga Nowotny (Former President of the European Research Council) will serve as the overall chair of the juries.

    The 10 categories include

    1. Life Sciences,
    2. Physical Sciences,
    3. Engineering and Technology,
    4. Social Sciences and the Humanities,
    5. Science in the Arts,
    6. Digital Education,
    7. Science and Innovation Management,
    8. Emerging Talents (Falling Walls Lab),
    9. Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture),
    10. Science Engagement (Falling Walls Engage).

    I am a member of the jury for "science and innovation management" and encourage you to nominate promising candidates in this domain (who may also self-nominate). Examples may include new approaches to funding science, to manage R&D employees, or to collaborate across disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

    Thank you so much and please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,
