Abstract

The belief that scientific research should contribute to the benefit of mankind is not only at the core of Alfred Nobel's last will, it is also frequently found in the motivation letters of young researchers applying for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
Yet, how does one make a difference? How can a young scientist contribute to changing the world for the better?
Is sufficient funding the key? Do we need to get out of the labs and experience problems where they actually occur? How can we best team up to have a stronger impact?
These questions will be discussed at this year's closing panel discussion during the 64th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting - in the tradition of its firm belief in strengthening science for and within society.
