The countdown has started! On 23rd September 2022 a group of 20 selected participants will be given the opportunity to present their solutions to some of the most pressing challenges of our time. 

They will pitch in front of peers, a high-calibre jury, and the general public. The first-place winner of the Lab qualifies for the global finale in Berlin on 7 November and wins a ticket to attend the Falling Walls Science Summit, where they get to interact and network with the world’s movers and shakers of science, business, and policymaking.
