Some of Atlantic Canada’s brightest minds are set to pitch scientific and social innovations with the potential to transform the world for the better — and you could have a front row seat.
On September 21 at 6:30 p.m. at Halifax Central Library’s Paul O'Regan Hall, 13 students and alumni from Dalhousie and universities across the region will compete in the Falling Walls Lab Atlantic Canada pitch competition. Each will have just three minutes to impress a panel of judges with their impactful ideas.
“The world is facing a lot of challenges. From climate change to social strife, there is much to be concerned about. But we can’t lose hope and that is what Falling Walls is all about,” says Alice Aiken, Dalhousie’s vice president research and innovation. “It’s an evening to celebrate forward-looking solutions and a future that can be made brighter with bright ideas.”
Attendees will be treated to lightning-fast presentations providing a glimpse into the freshest thinking on how to bring clean water to the world, deliver power without fossil fuels, conserve energy, reduce waste, improve our health and longevity, breed better crops, protect our oceans, keep our most vulnerable safe, and more.
The winner will receive an expense paid trip to the competition’s global finals at the Falling Walls Science Summit in Berlin, Germany on November 7, where they will share their salvatory solutions with an audience including Nobel Laureates and other global thought leaders.
Dalhousie looks forward to welcoming the wider community to the Falling Walls Atlantic Canada competition. Register now to cheer on the competitors!
