Falling Walls Lab Perm, Blitz Format, to Be Held at PSU on 21 September 2020

Interested in presenting break-through ideas? Looking for inspiration? Fishing for experts’ support and advice?

The Falling Walls Lab Perm, a known blitz conference in popular science will be held at PSU on 21 September, 2020. This year, the Falling Walls Lab Perm takes place in online format. The participants are offered 3 minutes to present their innovative approach through a research, business idea or project, using English as the language of presentation. The selected winner’s performance will be professionally recorded and sent to Berlin (Germany) to participate in the Falling Walls Lab 2020 finals competition.

“All the participants’ ideas and projects presented at the selection stage, beyond any doubt touch upon most urgent challenges. Preventing plane crashes, making mining waste-free, dealing with inflammatory diseases, as well as many other issues from various fields of researchers’ competence serve an example for that. Running a blitz conference in a new format is surely a challenge, both for the participants and organizers,”

admits Natalia Dobrynina, head of the Department of Network Programs and Educational Projects.

The winner of the Falling Walls Lab Perm will be provided an opportunity to participate in the Innovation Week. There, workshops on effective presentation of scientific ideas, turning them into a successful business project will be run by international experts and coaches.
