Falling Walls is a unique international platform for leaders from the worlds of science, business, politics, the arts and society. It was initiated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
Inspired by this world-changing event on 9 November 1989, the question of every Falling Walls gathering is: Which walls will fall next? Falling Walls fosters discussion on research and innovation and promotes the latest scientific findings among a broad audience from all parts of society.
The Falling Walls Foundation, a charity, is supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research, and numerous acclaimed academic institutions, foundations, companies, non-governmental organisations including EURAXESS.
