In dialogue with Nobel laureates

Three junior scientists to represent the University of Liechtenstein at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting from 23 to 27 August 2011.

Four junior researchers from Liechtenstein were invited to the meeting, three of which are from the University of Liechtenstein.

Stefan Seidel, Theresa Schmiedel and Claudia Brunner from the University of Liechtenstein as well as Berno Büchel from Saarland University will represent Liechtenstein at this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting of prizewinners in the field of economics. The four participants were selected from more than 5,000 candidates to meet approximately 20 attending laureates and around 360 junior scientists from more than 60 countries, as well as numerous high-ranking business representatives.

Selected from 5,000 candidates

The participation of three junior scientists from within its own ranks is a great honour and distinction for the University of Liechtenstein. Stefan Seidel teaches and researches as an assistant professor at the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management. In addition to Stefan Seidel, Theresa Schmiedel, doctoral student at the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management, and Claudia Brunner, doctoral student at the Chair of Technology and Entrepreneurship, are also taking part in the meeting. They were nominated as scholars by the International Lake Constance University (IBH) to attend this event. Berno Büchel from Liechtenstein, postdoctoral student at the Chair of Economic Theory at Saarland University, also passed the rigorous selection process and can participate in the Nobel Laureate Meeting as a scholar of the country.

Honour and distinction

The invitation to participate in the Nobel Laureate Meeting, which was extended to the young scientists for their achievements in research, is a special distinction for them. They thus receive the unique chance to talk to prizewinning researchers. The four participants will benefit from this opportunity to network with other junior scientists from around the world and, in particular, to broaden their knowledge and thus advance their teaching and research.
