Scientix 10th SPNE Brussels 26 Feb 2016: Lindau Nobel

  1. 1. Lindau Nobel Meetings – Content Source for All Mike W Rogers, Scientix SPNE10, Feb 26th 2016 COVERING: - What is Lindau - The Mediatheque - Co-operation
  2. 2. What are the LINDAU Nobel Laureate Meetings? Since 1951, “Lindau” (under patronage of the Bernadotte family) has hosted regular annual Laureate meetings in the Nobel Prize Sciences, as well as Interdisciplinary meetings, and in Economics. Since 2000 a strategy of internationalisation has reshaped the seminars so that now typically each meeting consists of 50-70 Laureates, 500-700 young scientists from over 80 countries, over 100 accredited journalists and media; and over 50 Directors of Research Programmes or other VIPS in an unprecedented week of interactivity and exchange of ideas. As a spin off, each meeting produces a wealth of material, both by the Laureates as well as the young scientists, who compete to be selected on an excellence basis and represent the best in their field, institute, programme or country. LINDAU is a registered foundation - charity, not for profit, and receives and manages donations and income from the meetings, each of which cost a 7 figure amount to stage. It has >200 Academic partners in all continents, including many national Central Banks (for Economics) It is not a recipient of any H-2020 funding.
  3. 3. Lindau – Mission EDUCATION Mission Education To promote wide recognition for science and research and to foster support for a knowledge-based society is the overall Mission Education of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings – and it applies especially to the area of science education. In this spirit, educative contents of the mediatheque are being gradually developed for use in schools anywhere. Moreover, teachers are supported in their work and involved in the dialogue with scientists, via workshops and content provision with guidelines etc. This Mission objective is the reason Lindau are a part of the SCIENTIX network
  4. 4. The Mediatheque With unique content dating back to 1952, the mediatheque maps a rich history of scientific dialogue. The mediatheque is being developed further to provide a learning platform and research resource for scientists and those fascinated by science, teachers and students. >500 lectures held by Nobel Laureates are already in the mediatheque: It contains more than 600 videos or slide shows, many already subtitled, annotated, abstracted and transcripted. Almost all (esp. more recent) are in English.
  5. 5. The Research Profiles Research Profile of Niels Bohr -biographical profiles of all Nobel Laureates who have thus far participated in the Lindau Meetings -explanatory information on the scientific accomplishments of the laureates - relating their research to the historical as well as to the contemporary scientific context

  7. 7. Mini Lectures Mini Lecture Photosynthesis Following a contemporary didactic approach, the mediatheque is complemented with short animated videos outlining key issues of science and research in an educative and entertaining fashion.
