Sciathon Rules

The goal of the 4th Lindau Online Sciathon is to develop project ideas and solutions for innovative applications of medical research in 48 hrs – and to have fun and interact with the global Lindau Meetings’ community.

The core of the Sciathon is cooperative, inclusive, fair teamwork done in diverse, interdisciplinary groups and in line with the Lindau Guidelines and the Lindau Spirit.

The result of the 48-hour Sciathon will be documented in a final report (up to five pages) that the groups have to hand in prior to the closing ceremony (21 April, 17.00 hrs CEST).

Groups should also create a 2-minute video about the project, to be delivered until 22 April, 17.00 hrs CEST.

Papers and videos will be reviewed by an expert jury. The 3–5 most promising groups after evaluation will get to present their ideas during the Sciathon Forum of the 73rd Lindau Meeting on 1 July 2024. Representatives of the groups on the short list will have the opportunity to present their projects and attend the meeting on the day of the presentation. This is not tied to an invitation in the strict sense with the assumption of travel costs. The most promising groups will be supported in optimally preparing their project presentation.
