Nobel lectures in Uppsala 13 December


Come and listen to the Nobel laureates’ lectures in Uppsala on 13 December.

It is a long-standing tradition for the newly awarded Nobel laureates to be invited to Uppsala University in connection with the Nobel Prize ceremonies in Stockholm. On 13 December, six of this year’s Nobel laureates will give lectures at Uppsala University. We look forward to seeing you there!

Every year in December, the newly awarded Nobel laureates are invited to Uppsala University. Their visiting programme includes a reception with the Vice-Chancellor and lunch at Uppsala Castle, but also the much appreciated public lectures given by the visiting laureates themselves.
