Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Paul Stevenson has been selected by the Australian Academy of Science to attend this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.

The annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provide a globally recognised forum for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists.

These meetings of Nobel Laureates in chemistry, physiology or medicine and in physics have been held since 1951.

At Lindau Meetings researchers at all levels of their careers have the opportunity to think about their work and to communicate it to others.

They are encouraged to be outspoken, yet appreciative of other points of view – a valuable and now highly proven way of communicating science across the generations.

“As you can imagine, this is an extremely prestigious award and to my knowledge, the first at Deakin,” said the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment's Professor Neil W. Barnett.

“I offer my heartiest congratulations to Paul.

“His achievement is a great boost for all us chemists, young and old, at Deakin!”

Dr Stevenson will attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings for Chemistry in June and July this year, along with 34 Nobel Laureates and more than 600 fellow undergraduates and post graduates from 78 nations.

“This meeting is a unique chance for young researchers from around the world to meet with Nobel Laureates from their respective scientific disciplines,” Dr Stevenson said.

“It is a great honour to be selected for this meeting and I am deeply thankful to Australia’s Science and Industry Endowment Fund for the chance to meet and learn from the world leaders in chemical research.”

Because of Australia’s relative isolation, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings offer a precious opportunity to be connected with the rest of the scientific world.

“I am sure Paul will represent Australia, and in particular Deakin brilliantly,” said Professor Barnett.

“He will find out a lot about what is happening in the world of chemistry, and the world will find out about Deakin’s growing contribution to those global activities.”
