Benedikt Frohn attended the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Benedikt Frohn attended the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to physics. The 580 students from 89 countries had the opportunity to discuss among each other and with the 39 Nobel Laureates. During best weather on the beautiful island of Lindau the students consisting of undergraduates, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers had plenty of possibilities to interact with the Nobel Laureates.

Benedikt Frohn says about the meeting: “It was a remarkable experience. The passion for science was ubiquitous and connected students and Laureates. They inspired me to go beyond the boundaries of today’s knowledge. I took a renewed motivation, a broadened scientific horizon and many new friendships home with me.”

Benedikt together with Piotr Kapuściński from CNRS in France and Rebekka Garreis from ETH Zurich in Switzerland won the poster prize at this years "Graphene Study 2019" making it possible to attend the Lindau meeting. In particular, the Graphene Flagship made this possible through a collaboration started this year with the Lindau meeting's organizers. Graphene and 2D materials were also a repeatedly discussed topic with Konstantin Novoselov giving a talk about "Materials of the Future" as well as a Science Breakfast were Graphene Flagship Director Jari Kinaret, Klaus von Klitzing and Novoselov spoke. Here the students had the opportunity to join the discussions and share their ideas about the future materials.
