Think TEDtalk + Dragon’s Den; Falling Walls Lab is a fast-paced format designed to showcase the quality, talent and passion of Next Gen researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs.

The Labs involve 34 international qualifying Labs the finale held in Berlin, Germany every November 8.

Falling Walls is inspired by the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was created by Germany’s Falling Walls Foundation to explore ‘the next walls to fall.’ The concept was designed to foster discussion on the latest research, innovation and science. The Lab and Conference are supported by international management consulting firm A.T.
