The Global Meeting on Science Strategy
The Falling Walls Circle is the exclusive global platform for science strategists and visionaries, who shape the agenda of tomorrow by exchanging ideas and developing solutions for today’s most pressing issues in science and society.
The invitation-only event brings together 50 key decision-makers from all around the world, including presidents and CTOs of research organisations as well as science- and technology-focused global corporations, senior government officials, cutting-edge experts, outstanding researchers and entrepreneurs.
The Circle engages and inspires peers by exploring complex problems, building personal relationships and facilitating institutional collaborations. It connects leaders from science, business and politics, who tackle crucial issues and emerging themes in and beyond science strategy. All participants are encouraged to actively shape the event by sharing their ideas, questions and solutions. The commitment of the attendees to the Chatham House Rule ensures an open discussion atmosphere and retains its confidentiality.
The event identifies and addresses major trends every year by placing them into new contexts and developing them further into exciting and often unexpected directions.
