Two EQUS researchers - Dr Yauhen (Eugene) Sachkou and W. Y. Sarah Lau - are among the Australian Academy of Science's representatives for the highly prestigious 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting in Germany.
The delegates will represent Australia at the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Germany. They are part of a group of 660 young scientists from 101 countries who will meet with 68 Nobel Laureates from the fields of chemistry, physics, and medicine and physiology, including Academy Fellows Professor Brian Schmidt and Professor Elizabeth Blackburn.
The meeting will provide an opportunity for the young scientists to share their research, experiences and ideas with and gain inspiration from fellow emerging scientists and Nobel Laureates.
The Australian delegation will be led by renowned Australian mathematician and Academy Fellow, Emeritus Professor Cheryl Praeger.
EQUS researcher Dr Sachkou said that the meeting was a unique opportunity to learn from Nobel Laureates and share knowledge and ideas.
Dr Sachkou said, “I believe that one of the best ways to advance science is through an exchange of ideas."
"Attending the Lindau Meeting wis a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'm excited to talk about how the state-of-the-art quantum technologies can benefit various fields of science, including chemistry and biology."
"The meeting will help me to establish long-running collaborations and inspire future interdisciplinary research, where quantum technologies would play the crucial role."
"Apart from academic research, I regard science communication as one of my main missions as a scientist. I look forward to sharing the ideas and knowledge, which I will acquire at the Nobel Laureates Meeting, through outreach events."
The Australian PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers attending are:
These researchers were nominated by the Academy and selected by the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. They will receive a grant to enable their attendance at the event, which runs from 28 June to 3 July, through the generous support of the Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF).
The delegates will also have the opportunity to join a SIEF Research Innovation tour visiting laboratories and businesses in Germany.
