Falling Walls Lab Sydney

The call for applications is now open for the Falling Walls Lab Sydney. Students, researchers, and early-career professionals who are residents of NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS or SA are invited to apply with their ground-breaking research, business models, and initiatives from all disciplines.

Selected participants are given the opportunity to participate in a pitch competition and present their work to peers, a high-calibre jury of experts from academia and business, and the general public. The winners will then compete with the other state finalists at the Falling Walls Lab Australia in Canberra on 5 September 2022 (organised by the Australian Academy of Science) to determine who will be representing Australia at the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin, Germany in November 2022 and win a ticket to the Falling Walls Conference. At the global Finale, 100 finalists from all over the world compete to become the Breakthrough Winner in the Emerging Talents category of Falling Walls, taking home the title and prize money, and receiving the opportunity to pitch their idea once again on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference.

The aim of the Falling Walls Lab is to provide a diverse and interdisciplinary pool of students, researchers, and early-career professionals with a world-class platform that helps them drive their innovations, develops their communication skills, and connects them with each other, creating a global network and impactful and sustainable community of innovators and changemakers.

The Falling Walls Lab Sydney will take place on 23 August 2022 at 5:00 PM.

Applications can be submitted online until 11 August 2022.
