Falling Walls Lab Sendai 2022 - Apply Now!

There's never been a more urgent need for innovative ideas and research, and the Falling Walls Lab is a timely platform for young researchers and creative thinkers to make a difference in the world.

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

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

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