Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Nobel Week Dialogue?

During the annual Nobel Week, held each December, the current year’s Nobel Laureates participate in a whirlwind of events and activities leading up to the 10th December, when they receive their Nobel Prizes and attend the Nobel Banquet. Since 2012, the roster of activities expanded to include a new event: the Nobel Week Dialogue, a day of lectures and panel discussions scheduled for the 9th December.

The goal of the event is to bring together a select group of the world’s leading scientists, policy-makers and thinkers for a series of thought-provoking sessions and working groups on a topical science-related theme. With this event the Nobel Institutions aim to deepen the dialogue between the scientific community and the rest of society on issues connected with the Nobel Prize and of importance for the world.

Is there any recourse to public funds or private scholarship in order to attend the event?

All expenses incurred in relation to attending the Nobel Week Dialogue as an audience member are the sole responsibility of the potential attendee.
