The 63rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting was officially opened on Sunday, 30 June, by Countess Bettina Bernadotte, President of the Council. Her opening speech ushered in a week of intercultural dialogue among elite scientists of different generations: 34 laureates and more than 600 young scientists from almost 80 countries are taking part in the meeting, the only one of its kind in the world.
