Falling Walls Lab Sendai 2023 - Apply Now!

Falling Walls Lab is a platform for young researchers and creative thinkers to make a difference in the world by sharing their innovative ideas.

Through three-minute presentations, participants have the opportunity to showcase their academic research, business models, or social initiatives to their peers and a jury of experts.

As always, Tohoku University is hosting Falling Walls Lab Sendai, and this year's event will be held onsite in September. Students, entrepreneurs, early-career researchers and academics from all disciplines are invited to apply.

Presentation coaching will be held throughout August, so participants can learn how to introduce their research in an engaging way, even if they have no prior experience.
