Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 20 April 2016

The African Union Commission (AUC) is pleased to announce the selection of three (03) young African scientists to participate in the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, dedicated to physics.

The 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will provide an opportunity for young African scientists to exchange scientific expertise and inspire cross-cultural and inter-generational encounters with other scientists. Up to 30 Nobel Laureates and a total of 402 highly-talented young scientists from all over the world (80 countries) will participate in the meeting that will be held in Lindau, Germany, from 26 June to 1 July 2016.

As an academic partner to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, the AU Commission was entitled to nominate up to 8 candidates among them the recipients of the African Union Kwame Nkrumah Young Scientist awards (laureates).

Three of these candidates have been selected; an outcome that will stimulate scientific research and development and hence foster excellence onthe continent. The selected candidates are:

Theresa Nkechi Obiekezie - Nnamdi Azikiwe Iniversity, Nigeria; Bernard Okelo Nyaare - Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University, Kenya and Meshack Kiyua Ndiritu - Space Scientist at the African Union Commission.

The opportunity to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates at Lindau is provided exclusively to outstanding young scientists aged up to 35 years. In order to participate in a meeting, they have to pass a multi-step application and selection process. Please visit the http://www.lindau-nobel.org/ for more information.
The Horst Köhler Fellowship Programme for young African scientists, kindly supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, covers the entire participation cost amounting to over 5,000.00 € per selected candidate.
