Partnership With Falling Walls

Which are the next walls to fall?

Sartorius is partnering with Falling Walls, with the goal of enabling scientists to share their knowledge with an audience as wide as possible, generating socially and geographically inclusive thinking and impact.​

The Falling Walls Foundation creates initiatives, innovative real-world spaces and digital platforms for future-paving scientific ideas worldwide by sharing information and experiences. By enabling discourse and cooperation among researchers, decision-makers, thinkers, artists, and emerging talents, Falling Walls is building bridges between those who dedicate their lives to world-changing tasks.

Falling Walls Science Summit

Each year from 7–9 November, Falling Walls invites to its Science Summit in Berlin to explore the forefront of scientific breakthroughs and emerging trends that shape our world.​  This three-day gathering unites experts from various scientific disciplines to explore groundbreaking research and foster collaborative solutions for the challenges of our time. Sartorius regularly joins the Science Summit by co-hosting expert plenary tables on topics around the life sciences.
