Physics MSc student Priidik Gallagher attended the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
University of Tartu physics Master's student Priidik Gallagher represented Estonia at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting from 30 June to 5 July 2019.
Since 1951, Nobel laureates and young scientists meet annually at Lindau in Germany to foster scientific exchange between different generations and cultures. The lectures and discussions are not just about the latest scientific results, but concern various the topics that are of greater importance to science and scientists. The focus of this year's meeting was on physics, namely, dark matter, cosmology, laser physics, and gravitational waves. This year 39 Nobel Laureates and 600 young researchers from 89 countries attended the forum.
"The Lindau Meeting is a great opportunity to meet with the masters of the field, Nobel laureates, and future-generation scientists, discuss the most important scientific issues, and explore the physics research in both close and more distant subfields," summarized his impressions Priidik Gallagher. "I'm glad I had the opportunity to take part in this event."
Estonia's participation was mediated by the Estonian Academy of Sciences.
