About Falling Walls

The Falling Walls Lab Warsaw is an event for young innovators to present their breakthrough ideas for science and society. Participants showcase their work in 3 minutes each in front of a cross-disciplinary audience and a high-ranked jury. The winner travel to the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin, which takes place every year on 8 November. At the Berlin Lab, 100 innovators receive the opportunity to present their work in front of a distinguished jury and attend the Falling Walls Conference on 9 November where they meet the world’s top scientists. The three winners of the Berlin Lab will get the chance to present their ideas once more on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference to an international audience.
