Who is eligible?

We are waiting for the application of bachelor, master and PhD students, postdocs, young experts, entrepreneurs and professors.

If there is a question, you did not get an answer for, we advise you to visit the official Falling Walls Lab website.

On the 8th of September, we provide you with the opportunity to pitch your idea at an independently organized event in Budapest in front of an interdisciplinary jury. At the end of the event you will have the possibility to get involved in exciting discussions and network with fellow innovators and experts from different disciplines.
