On June 09, 2021, the DAAD Information Center Taipei, in cooperation with the German Institute Taipei and the Taiwanese Ministry of Research (MoST), is organizing a Falling Walls Lab in Taiwan.

Falling Walls Labs are popular science slams that are held worldwide for students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and (young) scientists to present their innovation ideas and research projects in 3-minute lectures. Last year for the first time a Falling walls lab was organized in Taiwan. The winner of the Falling Walls Lab Taipei is selected by a jury headed by the Director General of the German Institute Taipei Dr. Thomas Prinz and the Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Minn-Tsong Lin. The winner of the Falling Walls Lab Taipei will represent Taiwan in the global finals in November and will be given the opportunity to attend the Falling Walls Conference, which takes place annually in November to mark the fall of the Berlin Wall. The travel expenses for participating in the finals will be borne by the DAAD. There is also the option of participating in the Innovation Week organized by the DAAD and renowned Germanuniversities. The TU Darmstadt is also inviting the Taiwanese winner to a visit. The winners of the final will also give a speech on the stage of the Falling Walls conference and receive prize money.

The venue for the Falling Walls Lab Taipei 2021 is at the German Institute Taipei (101 Tower, 33rd Floor). You can get an impression of last year's event  on the DAAD Taiwan YouTube channel. Due to limited space at the German Institute, only selected guests and journalists can attend the event (on request). However, the event will also be made available to a wider audience via a Facebook stream.
