The MSCA Falling Walls Lab aims to foster scientific and entrepreneurial innovation and promote the cross-discipline exchanges between outstanding, emerging scholars and professionals. These labs allow researchers to showcase their discoveries – creating a positive impact on science and society in front of their peers, a distinguished jury from academia, business and governmental institutions and the broader public.

The event will take place during the MSCA German Presidency Conference on 29 September 2020. MSCA fellows from across an array of scientific disciplines will celebrate their projects. Research on fascinating topics such as the people’s right to free movement, the future batteries for electric vehicles and the ethics behind technologies used during the COVID-19 pandemic will all be centre stage at the event.

Each fellow will be given three minutes to pitch his/her research topic, innovative project or idea, in addition to a one-minute Q&A session. In total, 20 MSCA researchers from 19 different projects will participate in the event, including 14 postdoctoral fellows from the following projects:
