For many years it has been a tradition for the new Nobel Prize laureates to be invited to Uppsala University in connection with the Nobel celebrations in Stockholm. This year medicine, chemistry and economics laureates will visit Uppsala 13 December and give public lectures.

The Nobel Laureates’ visit programme includes a reception with the Vice-Chancellor and a festive lunch at Uppsala Castle, but also the much appreciated public lectures given by the visiting laureates.
