The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is a scientific conference that takes place every year in Lindau, Germany. Nobel Laureates convene to meet with outstanding young scientists from all over the world. The aim is to foster interactions between scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The basis of these meetings is on the principle of dialogue. Further, the different session activates the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience among the Nobel Laureates and young scientists.

This call is an invitation to young African scientists in the field of Economics (graduate students and postdoctoral or early tenure-track scientists) to submit their interest for nomination for the 7th Meeting of Nobel Laureates on Economic Sciences. AAS seeks to nominate candidates from all the five regions of the continent.

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) in partnership with the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will support the participation of early-career African scientists in the three Natural Science fields and Economics at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. Moreover, eligible young participants to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are among (1) undergraduate students; (2) masters and doctoral students; and (3) young postdoctoral scientists in the three natural and economic sciences.
