Sciathon Rules

The goal of the Online Sciathon 2020 is to develop project ideas and solutions on the three given topics in 48 hrs – and to have fun and interact with the global Lindau Meetings’ community.

The topics are:

  • Lindau Guidelines
  • Communicating Climate Change
  • Capitalism after Corona

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 June, 17.00 hrs CEST).

Groups should also create a 2-minute video about the project, to be delivered until (new:) 22 June, 8.00 hrs CEST. The video and possibly the report will be released on the Sciathon website and, if applicable, through the Lindau Meetings’ online platforms.

A review panel will select the top project results. The selected groups then receive the opportunity to present their work during the Online Science Days 2020 to the participants, including Nobel Laureates and Lindau Alumni.
