Learn, share and communicate about research!

Based on the idea of "breaking down various walls" around the world, this event provides students, young researchers and professionals of all disciplines and nationalities an opportunity to present their research projects or ideas in 3 minutes and in English, in front of a non-specialised audience.

The winners from the Falling Walls Labs from around the world - including the Falling Walls Lab AIMST - gather annually for the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin.

The Falling Walls initiative was founded to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The Falling Walls Lab AIMST is supported by EURAXESS ASEAN.

Falling Walls Lab AIMST is a platform for excellent academics, entrepreneurs and professionals from all disciplines who would like to present their research work, business model, innovative project or idea in front of their peers and a distinguished jury from academia and business – in 3 minutes each.

The Falling Walls Lab AIMST is hosted by AIMST University, Malaysia and will take place on 24 August 2019 at AIMST University, Bedong, Kedah state, Malaysia.
