The Falling Walls Lab is a non-profit series of scientific conferences aimed at building and fostering connections between outstanding researchers, academics, entrepreneurs, and professionals. These conferences take place across the globe throughout the year and undergraduates and postgraduates, young professionals, entrepreneurs and junior professors whose latest university degrees do not date back more than 5 years are allowed to apply for the competition.
The winner of each Falling Walls Lab qualifies for the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin on November 8, and an A.T. Kearney Scholarship for the Falling Walls Conference on 9 November 2016, with accommodation and travel paid for by Falling Walls Lab. This exception was made especially for FCCU and was made possible by the sponsorship from DAAD. FCCU was also the only university in the world to have its name as a part of the official title of the conference – Falling Walls Lab FCCU Lahore, 2016.
TAME won came in first place and co-founder Awais Shafique was named Pakistan’s Young Innovator of the Year 2016 and was chosen to represent Pakistan in the final stage of the Falling Walls Lab in Berlin, Germany.
