The African Union Commission (AUC) is pleased to announce the selection of three (03) young African scientists to participate in the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, dedicated to physics.

The 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will provide an opportunity for young African scientists to exchange scientific expertise and inspire cross-cultural and inter-generational encounters with other scientists. Up to 30 Nobel Laureates and a total of 402 highly-talented young scientists from all over the world (80 countries) will participate in the meeting that will be held in Lindau, Germany, from 26 June to 1 July 2016.

As an academic partner to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, the AU Commission was entitled to nominate up to 8 candidates among them the recipients of the African Union Kwame Nkrumah Young Scientist awards (laureates).
