GDL Member Susanne Salz at Falling Walls Lab 

Berlin, November 2015

Falling Walls is an international platform for leaders from the worlds of science, business, politics, the arts and society. It was initiated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

Inspired by this world-changing event on 9 November 1989, the question of every Falling Walls gathering is: Which walls will fall next? Falling Walls fosters discussion on research and innovation and promotes the latest scientific findings among a broad audience from all parts of society.

The Falling Walls Foundation, a charity, is supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Helmholtz Association, the Berlin Senate and numerous other acclaimed academic institutions, foundations, companies, non-governmental organisations and prominent individuals.

GDL Member Susanne Salz was one of the speakers of the Falling Walls Lab 2015 and represented the GDL by talking about "Breaking The Wall Of Global Diplomacy".
