NanoLundian among the delegates to Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Since their foundation in 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have developed into a unique international scientific forum. This year, NanoLundian Ofentse Makgae is participating.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate meetings are annually hosting an event where young scientists – students, PhD candidates and post-docs – meet with Nobel Laureates. This year, NanoLundian Ofentse Makgae is one of the Swedish delegates participating.

We are proud to announce that NanoLundian postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Ofentse Makgae is one of the 15 delegates from Swedish universities attending the 2022 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, dedicated to chemistry and economic sciences.

Ofentse Makgae is a researcher at NanoLund and a postdoctoral research fellow in environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) within the national centre for high-resolution electron microscopy (nCHREM) at the Centre for Analysis and Synthesis (CAS).

“What I look forward to the most about this event, is meeting the Nobel Laureates, networking and forging long-lasting relationships with other brilliant young scientists from across the world”, says Ofentse Makgae.

Once every year, about 30–40 Nobel Laureates convene on the island of Lindau in south Germany, to meet the next generation of leading scientists. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings offers young scientists a unique opportunity to meet scientists from different generations, cultures, and disciplines.

The Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien (the Swedish Academy of Sciences) and the Ragnar Söderbergs Stiftelse (the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation) made the recommendation of Swedish participants to the Lindau Review Panel, which makes the final selection.

The theme of the Lindau Meetings alternates between the three Nobel Prize scientific disciplines, Physics, Chemistry or Physiology/Medicine. Every five years an interdisciplinary Meeting takes place, while the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years. The varied formats of the scientific programme – lectures, discussions and more – are designed based on the principle of dialogue and to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience between and among Nobel Laureates and young scientists.
