3rd Lindau Online Sciathon 2023: Finalists

27 project groups participated in the 3rd Lindau Online Sciathon in April 2023. They worked together virtually for 48 hours and submitted a paper and videos. After careful evaluation these deliverables, the expert jury has determined the top group in this year’s topic “Innovative Applications of Medical Research”. These five finalists are presented below.  

The top five projects discussed their ideas with business experts, early investors and representatives from funding organisations at an exclusive Sciathon workshop during the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.  In an audience vote at the end of the workshop, two of the groups were particularly highlighted: Group Yerolatsitis and Group Herberger & Restrepo-Schild.
