Every summer since 1951, an extraordinary meeting between Nobel Laureates and young scientists has taken place on Lindau Island in Germany. At 2010’s cross-disciplinary meeting this summer, Nature Publishing Group's video team followed five young students as they met their Nobel idols. You might think a senior biologist and a young engineer have little in common, but these encounters threw up plenty of ideas across disciplines and generations. This trailer offers a glimpse of the films that follow, including a special film celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Lindau Meetings.
