The world’s top researchers get to know the Telekom Laboratories at the sixtieth international meeting of Nobel laureates in Lindau, located on Lake Constance in Germany. Participants also benefited from optimal communications support from the T-Labs.
Nobel Prize winners from around the world came together last Sunday for the sixtieth annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, first held in 1951. The 59 laureates from the categories of physics, medicine and chemistry joined international students and young researchers for a week of lectures and discussions on this year’s topic of sustainable development. Communication for experts The T-Labs are the Group’s central research and development unit and are considered the innovation driver at Deutsche Telekom. The T-Labs are not only benefactors of the event, but also provided optimal communications support on site with an ad-hoc mobile network (Mesh) and by setting up the expert community (Spree). More than 120 experts are already registered on the Spree Community. Big changes start small At the end of the conference, the laureates will visit the "Discoveries 2010: Energy" scientific exhibition on the Isle of Mainau, which will be open until August 29. There, visitors will learn more about innovative research projects on sustainability. The Telekom Laboratories will also be at the exhibition for the first time ever with their own pavilion, where they will present energy-efficient innovations. In line with the theme "Big changes start small", the exhibits focus on how to think and act with sustainability in mind.
