Falling Walls Lab Tokyo is calling all talented students, researchers, and early career professionals to showcase their most innovative ideas:
Students, researchers, and early-career professionals can now apply for the Falling Walls Lab Tokyo to present their innovative ideas - in 3 minutes each. Groundbreaking research, business models, and initiatives from all disciplines are welcome.
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.
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, competing to win a chance to compete in the global Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin, Germany on 7 November 2022 and a ticket to the Falling Walls Conference. At the global Finale, around 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.
In addition, EURAXESS Japan will offer a lump sum of EUR500 to support a physical visit to the research institute of the winner's choice in Europe when participating in the Falling Walls Lab finals in Berlin (if travel is not possible due to the Covid-19 situation, the money can be reassigned for a different purpose).
