THE GLOBAL INTERDISCIPLINARY PITCH COMPETITION FOR STUDENTS AND EARLY-CAREER PROFESSIONALS

Three minutes is all it takes! Falling Walls Lab is a world-class pitch competition, networking forum, and steppingstone that brings together a diverse and interdisciplinary pool of students and early-career professionals by providing a stage for breakthrough ideas both globally and locally. The multifaceted format supports participants in driving their innovations and develops their communication skills, fostering collaboration and creating a space for the impactful and sustainable community to thrive.

Selected participants are given the opportunity to present their solutions to some of the most pressing challenges of our time to peers, a high-calibre jury, and the general public – in three minutes! The first-place winner of the Lab qualifies for the global finale in Berlin on 7 November and wins a ticket to attend the Falling Walls Science Summit, where they get to interact and network with the world’s movers and shakers of science, business, and policymaking. At the global finale, the international Lab winners compete to become the Breakthrough Winner in the Emerging Talents category of Falling Walls, taking home the title and prize money, and receiving the opportunity to pitch their idea once again on the Falling Walls Breakthroughs of the Year stage, which, throughout the day, hosts leading experts, changemakers, and luminaries, including Nobel laureates and Leibniz Prize winners.

Falling Walls Lab Cairo is hosted by the DAAD Regional Office Cairo and will take place on 25 July at 5 PM. Applications can be submitted via https://falling-walls.com/lab/apply/. The application deadline is 2 July 2022.

Falling Walls Lab is organised by the Falling Walls Foundation and generously funded by Berlin’s Natural History Museum (global finale), and Google and Huawei (international Labs). It is supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
