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 of December, when they receive their Nobel Prizes and attend the Nobel Banquet. Since last year, 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 of 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.
The 2013 Nobel Week Dialogue will take place on Monday 9th December 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The Nobel Week Dialogue is organised by Nobel Media AB. The programme for the meetings is overseen by a Programme Committee which includes the Secretaries of all six of the Nobel Prize Awarding Committees (see Organisers).
The meeting lasts just one day, but there will also be opportunities for online audiences to engage in activities before and after the meeting.
Anyone can register to become a member of the live audience for the Nobel Week Dialogue in Gothenburg. Nobel Week Dialogue 2013 is free to attend and registration for the meeting will open in September 2013.
You can also participate online. In order to extend the reach of the meeting beyond the live audience in Gothenburg, the proceedings will be streamed to a worldwide online audience, as well as recorded for posting as video on demand and subsequent TV broadcast.
