1) Life Sciences
2) Physical Sciences

4) Social Sciences and Humanities
5) Art and Science
6) Future Learning (formerly Digital Education)
7) Science and Innovation Management
8) Emerging Talents (Falling Walls Lab)
9) Science Start-Ups (Falling Walls Venture)
10) Science Engagement (Falling Walls Engage)
Please submit a short nomination (approx. 500 characters and contact information) via our website by 15 June 2021. The submitted nomination will be reviewed and the Nominee will be contacted directly for further details.
If your Nominee is selected, they will then become a Falling Walls Finalist. All Finalists will be officially announced on our website.
Our distinguished juries, chaired by Helga Nowotny, Professor Emerita of the European Research Council, will select 10 Winners each for categories 1-7. Through the respective pre-selection processes, 100 Winners for category 8, 25 Winners for category 9 and 20 Winners for category 10 will be invited to the Falling Walls Pitches on 7 November, where they will receive the opportunity to pitch their work live in front of our distinguished juries. Each Winner will also have the opportunity to feature their winning project in a short video in our content library. A detailed briefing will be provided for this purpose.
The juries will select the Science Breakthroughs of the Year from the Winners of each category. On 9 November, the Breakthroughs of the Year will receive the opportunity to present their work to a global audience on the grand Falling Walls stage in Berlin.
You are encouraged to distribute this Call for Nominations within your networks. We highly appreciate your support.
