The Lord Mayors Parlour, Manchester Town Hall – 6pm, 27 July 2016
Hosted by the Manchester Enterprise Centre, Falling Walls Lab is an international forum aimed at promoting interdisciplinary connections between excellent academics, entrepreneurs and professionals from all fields. Under the theme of ‘Which walls will fall next?’, candidates from all disciplines will have three minutes to share their research, visions, and business model with a panel of experts. They must identify which ‘wall’ they want to break and speak on how their research and ideas will help to do this.
UK finalists will be invited to the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin, featuring presentations from some of the world’s most prominent scientists.
The first Falling Walls Lab took place in 2011, one day prior to the Falling Walls Conference. Following its success, the Falling Walls Foundation and partners extended the format to a global scale. Since 2012, international Labs take place in different vibrant cities around the world throughout the year. So far, Falling Walls Labs have taken place in more than 30 countries.
