Falling Walls Lab Cairo calls for talented researchers and professionals to showcase their most innovative ideas. Outstanding researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals can as of now apply for the Falling Walls Lab Cairo on 23 September 2020 to present their idea in 3 minutes.
Each year, academic institutions host local Falling Walls Labs to showcase the quality, diversity, and passion of their region’s most innovative minds. The winners of these Labs travel to the global Finale in Berlin on 8 November. 100 Labsters present their work in front of a distinguished jury and showcase their solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time. All finalists win a ticket to attend the Falling Walls Conference, where they meet the world’s movers and shakers of science, business, and policymaking. The three winners of the Lab Finale in Berlin are awarded the title “Falling Walls Young Innovator of the Year”. They receive a prize money and the opportunity to pitch their idea once again on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference.
In 2020, international Falling Walls Labs take place all over the world and call for the application of Bachelor and Master students, postdocs, young professionals, entrepreneurs and junior professors. Ground-breaking research projects, initiatives, ideas and business models from all disciplines are welcome.
The Falling Walls Lab Cairo will take place on the 23 September 2020 at 7:00 PM. This year’s event will be slightly different to the Labs we have hosted before in Cairo: considering the recent developments regarding the corona virus pandemic (COVID-19/ SARS-CoV-2), we have decided to host our Lab in a virtual event. Therefore, the Falling Walls Lab Cairo will take place remotely with all jury members, participants and viewers attending the event online.
