The OIC Standing Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation (COMSTECH) has signed MoU with the Lindau Council of Nobel Laureates, Lindau, Germany.  Under this joint program, COMSTECH can nominate 20 candidates in Natural Sciences on physiology and medicine, physics, and chemistry (the three natural sciences Nobel Prize disciplines). In addition, the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years and COMSTECH can nominate 15 Candidates to be considered for selection by the meeting’s scientific review panel, which is the final authority for selection.

An interdisciplinary meeting revolving around all three natural sciences is also held every five years.  In accordance with the MoU, the award includes economy class return air ticket and €5000 Registration Fee and Accommodation Charges per selected candidate for one week in Lindau.

COMSTECH has so far supported 25 young scientists/ scholars from Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sudan, Suriname, Tajikistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan since 2015.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings were started under the patronage of former German President Horst Köhler and funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Bunderministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit.  Participation in these meetings is highly prestigious and it is a unique opportunity for most promising young scientists to enhance their knowledge, establish new contacts and discuss relevant topics.  About 600 highly-talented young scientists from all over the world attend these meeting every year.

Lindau Meetings provide a globally recognized forum and more than 200 Nobel Laureates are Members of Founders’ Assembly for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists and once every year, about 30 Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau to meet the next generation of scientists.  The most exciting feature of the event is Lectures by Nobel Laureates on current scientific topics and relevant fields of research of the future. In panel discussions, seminars, and various events of the social programme, young researchers nominated by a worldwide network of Academic Partners like COMSTECH get the opportunity to directly interact with Nobel Laureates and benefit from their lectures. 

The scientific programme of each Lindau Meeting is based on the principle of dialogue. The different sessions – lectures, discussions, master classes, and panel discussions – are designed to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience between and among Nobel Laureates and young scientists.

Applicants who have successfully mastered the application process undoubtedly represent the emerging generation of leading scientists and researchers. Apart from taking the one-time chance to participate in a Lindau Meeting, these young scientists become part of a special community – a network of excellence. As alumni of the Lindau Meetings, former participants stay connected with each other and become ambassadors of the scientific dialogue fostered by the Lindau Meetings. In order to participate in a meeting, they have to pass a multi-step application and selection process. 

The participants are recruited among: i) under-graduate students, ii) master and doctoral students, and iii) young post-doctoral scientists in both meetings. The application and selection process is administered with the web-based system NAPERS.

ELIGIBILITY:

Nominated participants who should meet the following selection criteria are eligible to participate in the meeting:

  • Must not be older than 35 years of age or younger at the time of meeting.
  • Be fluent in English and capable of active participation in discussions.
  • Belong to the top 5% of their class.
  • Show a genuine interest in science and research.
  • Show a strong commitment to their principal field of study and to interdisciplinary work.
  • Who have not participated in the previous Lindau meetings
  • Who have not yet a permanent position (scientists with permanent position – in particular on the professor level – will not be admitted to the meeting).
  • Receive strong support of their application by their academic advisor and/ or by the international renowned scientists, through a detailed letter of recommendation, which greatly influence the evaluation. For those in medical clinical training, two letters of recommendation would be helpful – one from a scientists mentor and one from the head of department/ institution.

It is intended to have a good balance between these three groups:

  1. Undergraduate students, who
  • exhibit a solid general knowledge in Meeting Topic
  • have done some practical work and/or have laboratory experience.
  1. Master and doctoral students, who
  • show excellent academic accomplishments and
  • have produced some very good research work
  1. Postdoctoral scientists, who
  • have up to 5 years of postdoctoral experience (optimum about 2-3 years after doctoral degree),
  • have published results of their own scientific research in peer-reviewed journals, preferably as first author, and
  • have presented their work at international scientific meetings, preferably as lecturers.

SELECTION:

  • After scrutiny at COMSTECH, names of suitable candidates are to be forwarded to the Lindau Council in Germany who will make the final decision.
  • In view of the strict deadlines by the Lindau, nominations received after the deadlines are not entertained.
