Lennart Ziegler wins first prize at Lindau sciathon

08.07.2020

Together with seven other researchers from various disciplines and countries, Lennart Ziegler has won the first price in an online sciathon organized by the Lindau Nobel laureate meetings. The competing teams had 48 hours to develop concepts that can help to communicate climate change more effectively. The winning project proposed to target specific social media influencers and used publicly accessible data from Twitter to detect social media users who have not been exposed to climate change topics yet. 

The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has selected Lennart Ziegler to participate in the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences, which will be held in August 2021. The annual event invites nobel laureates and young researchers to foster academic exchange across generations.
