Royal Society Te Apārangi, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, would like to invite honoured guests, friends and family, and members of the public to attend Falling Walls Lab New Zealand.
Falling Walls Lab is a challenging, inspiring and interdisciplinary format to showcase the next generation of outstanding innovators and creative thinkers.
In three-minute presentations, 18 New Zealand-based and 2 Fiji-based participants have been selected to pitch their innovative research project, business model or social initiative relevant to the world today, to their peers, the interested public and a distinguished jury - promoting ideas and fostering interdisciplinary networks.
The event is inspired by the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989, with the question of every Falling Walls gathering being: Which walls will fall next?
The event is free admission and will occur on September 10, at Royal Society Te Apārangi.
