The Nobel laureates visit Uppsala

27 November 2018

On 13 December the 2018 Nobel laureates in chemistry and physics will visit Uppsala University. They will give a public lecture in the University Grand Auditorium on the research that led to their Nobel Prize.

For many years it has been a tradition to invite the new Nobel laureates to Uppsala University in connection with the Nobel Prize festivities in Stockholm. The programme for the visit includes a reception with the Vice-Chancellor and lunch at Uppsala Castle, but also the much appreciated and well-attended public lectures by the visiting laureates.

This years’ guests are the Nobel laureates in Chemistry Frances H. Arnold, George P. Smith and Sir Gregory P. Winter, and the Nobel laureate in Physics Donna Strickland.
