Research has the potential to have a positive impact on the world! Under this motto, the eight finalists pitched their inspiring ideas on the grounds of KIT Campus North on 22 June. The winner of the evening, Gabriela Figueroa Miranda, convinced with her presentation on overcoming false malaria diagnostics - we congratulate her warmly and wish her all the best for the international final at the Falling Walls Science Summit 2023 in Berlin!
A big thank you also goes to the organising team Domenica Riecker-Schwörer, Mia Zsohár, Lena Gutjahr and many others who planned and made this event possible.
We would also like to thank the Falling Walls Foundation, the Unternehmertum Wissensfabrik e.V., the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the University of Stuttgart, the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg and the jury consisting of Rubina Zern-Breuer (University of Stuttgart), Jan Rummel (University of Heidelberg), Helmut Schelling (Vector Foundation), Orestis Terzidis (KIT), Magnus von Knebel Doeberitz (University of Heidelberg) and Holger Rank (Bosch Healthcare Solutions)!
We are looking forward to the 2024 event in Stuttgart with our Elements4Founding team, funded by the Vector Foundation!
