Groups work on an idea pitched by Lindau Alumni in advance of the Sciathon through the Lindau Alumni Network.
Lindau Alumni who have successfully pitched an idea become group leaders.
Groups consist of 10 group members, including the group leader, who can be Lindau Alumni of any Lindau Meeting or Young Scientists 2023. Input from individuals outside the group should be limited and these sources must be indicated on the paper in an appropriate manner.
The group leader is responsible for coordinating the group, is the admin for the respective group and contact person between the group and the Sciathon organisers.
The majority of the competitive group work should be done during the 48 hours of the Sciathon. In the interest of a just competition, group members are not informed of the other members of the group in advance. To ease communication in the early stage of the Sciathon, the group leader will receive the contact information for all group members on 28 April 2023 a few hours before the start of the opening ceremony.
In general, the group leader communicates with the organisers in Lindau, e.g. to ask questions about the process. If need be, other group members can also contact the organisers. Main contact person is Christoph Schumacher.
