Lindau Online Sciathon 2021: 10–12 September 2021

Our Lindau Alumni and young economist community worked together for 48 hours on projects in four scientific topics that are based on the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (26 June–2 July 2021). Thank you to everyone who worked on this broad variety of ideas and concepts! Find the projects here and the topics – and the jury – below. The results will be announced on 12 October 2021.
