The Falling Walls Foundation is a non-profit organisation in Berlin, dedicated to the support of science and the humanities. It was established 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. At its heart is the question ‘Which are the next walls to fall?’ as a result of scientific, technological, economic and sociological breakthroughs.
Each year the foundation supports scientific organisations around to world to host a Falling Walls Lab.
