The World Laureates Forum

The World Laureates Forum (WLF), initiated by WLA in 2018, is the highest-profile science conference and the foremost scientific gathering of prize winners in the world. Each year, world laureates, academicians of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, outstanding young scientists, and experts across all sectors convene in Shanghai, exchanging insights on international cooperation, major breakthroughs in basic science, challenges and opportunities of technology advancement and critical global issues facing mankind. WLF proves to be a valuable platform for communications across national borders, fields, disciplines and generations. It pioneered a series of featured programs - the “Mobius Forum” where leading scientists look into the future of science and technology; the “Young Scientists Forum” where laureates share their views with the younger generations at "tablecloth"; the “T Conference”, which aims at promoting popularization and dissemination of science to teenagers and the public. In 4 years since its establishment, WLF has become the most anticipated scientific event of the year. On October 29th, 2019, Xi Jinping, President of the People Republic of China, sent a congratulatory letter to the 2nd World Laureates Forum. On October 30th, 2020, President Xi delivered virtual remarks to the 3rd World Laureates Forum.
