The annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings focus alternately on medicine and physiology, physics, chemistry, and economic sciences. These meetings are a globally recognised forum for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists. This year the Irish Research Council supported the attendance of 7 talented young researchers who were chosen in a competitive process to attend the 64th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. The meeting this year was dedicated to Physiology, Medicine and Economics. In recognition of their success the Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation Mr. Damien English TD and Professor Orla Feely Chairperson of the Irish Research Council presented the researchers with their specially designed awards at a ceremony that took place in Meath on 15th September.
